Fancy a teaser trailer for an upcoming horror flick from Blumhouse Productions, who have brought us the likes of Insidious, Sinister and this week’s The Town That Dreaded Sundown?

I’m sure you do, so here’s The Gallows, directed by Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing and starring the likes of Cassidy Gifford and Ryan Shoos.

Here’s the simple synopsis:

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…

And here’s the trailer:

Agreed, the trailer doesn’t give too much away, but in this day and age that is no bad thing.

The Gallows swings into UK cinemas on September 4.
