Back in June of last year we learned that New Line Cinema had made its first acquistion in eight years by snatching up the rights to Blumhouse Productions' micro-budget horror tale SUPERSTITION. We later learned that the film had been hit with a July 10, 2015 release date and a new title: THE GALLOWS. Other than that bit of information we knew next to nothing about the film, which is directed by Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff, but today that changes as we have an official synopsis for the high school set horror film to share with you. Check it out:

“Everyone in Beatrice, Nebraska knows the name Charlie Grimille, just as everyone knows what happened 30 years ago on stage at Beatrice High School’s production of ‘The Gallows.’   Originally the understudy, Charlie took the lead’s place on opening night. But instead of bowing to applause, Charlie ended up really swinging from the noose. Charlie’s death has loomed over the small town ever since.  Now, on the anniversary of his tragic real-life curtain call, Beatrice High School’s drama department is preparing to perform the same play, in the same auditorium.  Pfeifer, the star of the show, has spear-headed the revival in an attempt to put the past to rest. The night before the big debut, however, Pfeifer discovers her male costar, Reese, with his football buddy, Ryan, and Ryan’s cheerleader girlfriend, Cassidy, sabotaging the props in an attempt to ruin the opening. But there is far more to worry about than the show going on. Suddenly locked in, with no cell service, no way out, and no one knowing they are even there, the teens soon realize Charlie isn’t at peace.  And he isn’t resting.”

Rumor has it that THE GALLOWS has some kind of found footage element to it but we'll have to wait for an official trailer to see how much of the film will be in that format. We should see a trailer soon enough, though, as the film is still scheduled for a July 10 release.
