The directors Chris Lofing and Travis Cluff and actor Reese Mishler recently appeared on Coast to Coast AM and talked about their just released horror movie The Gallows . Together, over the course of four years, the filmmakers and actor kept shooting and reshooting as The Gallows grew from a little unknown film with clips on YouTube to a Jason Blum (“Paranormal Activity”) produced film with a major release from New Line Cinema and Warner Brothers. In fact, The Gallows is the lowest budgeted film (made for just $100,000) to ever have such a wide release– opening in over 2,700 theaters in the US on July 10th, and in 62 countries worldwide.
The premise of the movie deals with the re-staging of a high school play–twenty years earlier, a student actor tragically died in a freak accident during the performance. During the show on Coast to Coast, the Director detailed how he edited the film on a home computer. Reese Mishler shared a spooky incident that occurred while filming in an attic at a VA hospital in Fresno — a strange voice whispered his name, and it was not part of the film.
