Highly Suspect Reviews: The Gallows

13 Submitted by on Thu, 09 July 2015, 08:59

A high school play that once killed a student is re-attempted 20 years later, but something (!) wants, erm, to, ah, kill high schoolers. Boy, I’ll be the suspect list is endless on that one. This found footage film found fealty from few, but our critics see it how it is. Marvel at Ashley, Sarah and JC as they restage the play to understand its secrets.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Goddamit! I didn’t know there was a Drama Club angle!

      Do you need to have taken it to be on OneOfUs, because I never took it.

        Does have to be a club because I had it as class

    The only way I see this movie, if the teenagers from Breakfast Club were in it and die.

      They may have popped in for a bit. I wouldn’t know. The camera was mostly pointed at the floor.

    Hey Ashley what did you say to Sam from Supernatural?

    • AshleyMoreno

      Hmmm…. not much really. In Texas high school “forensics teams” are half debate/public speaking (me) and half drama/interp (him). So we were technically on the same competition team (same school), but we didn’t really know each other. He seemed super nice though. Everyone liked him 🙂
