Now quite frankly I thought that The Gallows was utter rubbish and while I was watching it in the cinema I couldn’t understand for the life of me how it managed to get a cinema release. However, the film – shot on a budget of just $100,000 but earning just under $23 million at the domestic box office and $43 million worldwide – was immensely profitable. So it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if they’ve made a sequel, though if they have, they’ve taken a leaf out of Adam Green’s book and shot it in secret.

According to Arrow in the Head, the possible existence of The Gallows 2 has been revealed by ticket site 1iota, which lists a “special advance screening” in Burbank, California and is trying to recruit “horror fans in the age range of 13 to 25” to see. It sounds like a test audience situation. The site even lists a few cast members – Ema Horvath, Brittany Falardeau, Chris Milligan – and a synopsis:

“After aspiring actress Auna Rue transfers to a prestigious new school, her desires are twisted by a viral challenge capable of conjuring a malevolent spirit”.

Arrow in the Head think that this is enough to match up with the first Gallows. What do you think? I’ll say one thing though. If I turned up at an advance screening of something and it turned out to be The Gallows 2, I’d probably be straight out the door.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
