There's no doubt that Blumhouse Productions has become quite the producer of horror franchises since hitting it big with Paranormal Activity in 2009. Since then, they've launched franchises with Insidious, Sinister and The Purge, and this summer brings another new horror flick in the form of The Gallows. The first teaser trailer has just arrived, and while it doesn't tell us much about the story following high school kids terrorized by some kind of malicious force after resurrecting a stage production where a student died during a performance, it's a pretty haunting tease of the terror to come, especially with the red lighting.
Here's the teaser trailer for Chris Lofing & Travis Cluff's The Gallows from Warner Bros. Pictures:
The Gallows is written and directed by Chris Lofing & Travis Cluff. Twenty years after an accident caused the death of the lead actor during a high school play, students at the same small town school resurrect the failed stage production in a misguided attempt to honor the anniversary of the tragedy—but ultimately find out that some things are better left alone. Cassidy Gifford, Ryan Shoos, Reese Mishler and Pfeifer Brown star in the Blumhouse Productions film, and New Line Cinema releases it on July 10th this summer.
