Review: The Gallows, 2015, dir. Travis Cluff & Chris Lofing

“Congratulations, The Gallows: You’re this year’s As Above, So Below, which means that you’re this year’s Chernobyl Diaries, and on and on throughout found footage’s rich history as a hotbed for horror hack-work. (For every Trollhunter, there’s an Apollo 18. For every Creep, there’s…well, something like this.) It doesn’t take much to make found-footage movies – if The Gallowsdoesn’t prove that, its ancestors sure do – but it takes a lot to make themwork. They need a core of internal logic, for one thing, and it helps immensely to give half a damn. Writer-director team Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff barely even muster a quarter-damn, if that. Frankly, the very idea that this movie needs more than one person to either write or direct it is laughable.” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
