Twenty years earlier in the small town of Beatrice, Nebraska, there was a terrible accident that took place during a presentation of the play "The Gallows" at Beatrice High School.

Charlie Grimille, who was the understudy, filled in for the lead on opening night, but ended up swinging from the noose on stage during curtain calls.

In an attempt to honor the anniversary, Beatrice High School’s drama department decides to remount the play in an attempt to put the past to rest.

Pfeifer (Pfeifer Brown), the star of the show, discovers her costar, Reese (Reese Mishler), his football buddy, Ryan (Ryan Shoos) and Ryan’s cheerleader girlfriend, Cassidy (Cassidy Gifford), sabotaging the props one night. But when the teens are locked in the school with no cell service and no way out, they soon discover Charlie isn’t at peace.

Director: Chris Lofing, Travis Cluff

  • 2 stars "OK Not Great"
  • 1 star "We watch an average of one movie a week and there are very few times I even think about walking out on a movie. This was one of those time. The last movie that was this bad was back in 1998 (Sphere) where I remember apologizing to someone who I asked to come watch it with me. The thinly strung together story line in Gallows might have been easier to follow along with if not for the high-school acting. 18 yr old teens acting like 7 yr old. Blair Witch had better acting with steadier camera work. We love good thrillers, but this was a big let down."
