‘Evil chooses you’
The Gallows Act II is a 2017 American paranormal horror feature film written and directed by Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing (The Gallows). The Blumhouse Productions-Tremendum Pictures movie stars Ema Horvath, Brittany Falardeau and Chris Milligan.
After aspiring actress Auna Rue (Ema Horvath) transfers to a prestigious new school, her desires are twisted by a viral challenge capable of conjuring a malevolent spirit…
“Like The Gallows, this bows out with a downbeat twist, but it’s too little too late for a mostly lazy sequel. If you want a movie about an insecure teen vlogger, go and watch Bo Burnham’s wonderful Eighth Grade instead. Guaranteed: 100% less jump scares, 100% more genuine dread and no hanging scenes.” Horrorscreams Videovault
