Movie Critics

…The cinematic version of The Gallows wants us to cringe and squeal and laugh at the lethal misfortunes of others, to count the bodies that pile up on screen and leave the theater smiling. …
—Paul Asay, Plugged In

…based on shaky footage, endangered teens, and a bogeyman who dispatches his victims with a noose. Except The Gallows offers exactly none of the frisson or pleasure of a found-footage film done right. …
—Josh Kupecki, The Austin Chronicle

…a shaky premise… a scenario that lacks basic credibility even in the realm of the supernatural, and even… simple pacing problems. … [1½/4]
—Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine

…another “found footage” horror film fails in its originality… It would be easy to spend hours trashing “The Galllows” if it just wasn’t so disposable. … [1/4]
—Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail

…The cast is tiny, so that when you realize Lofing and Cluff are playing a game of “And Then There Were None,” it’s a pretty short game indeed. [½/4]
—Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

…Found-footage thriller “The Gallows” should have stayed lost… nonsensical and virtually scare-free… the ending is jaw-droppingly ridiculous. [0/4]
—Lou Lumenick, New York Post

…chintzy creepshow…Horrifying? No, just horrible…
—Stephen Whitty, The Star-Ledger (New Jersey)

…“Gallows” hangs itself with a poor plot… has one character so obnoxious that he nearly spoils a good chunk of the movie… [2/4]
—Barbara Vancheri, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
