Prepare to scream! Cassidy Gifford unleashed a frightening new clip from her upcoming horror flick ‘The Gallows’ while on the ‘Today’ show on July 6. WATCH the scary clip here — if you dare!
If your nightmare is to be trapped in a haunted high school, look away! Cassidy Gifford, 21, dropped by the Today show on July 6 to promote her horror film, The Gallows, and it looks like one big scare fest! In a new horrifying clip, we see things take a very dark turn for Cassidy — even her mom, Kathie Lee Gifford, 61, and Hoda Kotb, 50, couldn’t hide their terror!
The clip shows a closeup of a crying Cassidy under a dark, red tinted light. Since it’s a closeup, we have no idea what she’s crying over at first. However, the camera then pulls back and it’s revealed she has a large rope wrapped around her neck! Within the blink of an eye, she’s violently thrusted back and dragged away. Soooo scary!
Kathie and Hoda couldn’t help but express their fright! “I knew it was coming and I’ve seen the movie and it still freaks me out!” Kathie says. Cassidy chimes in that she, too, knew it was coming and that scene still freaks her out. Cassidy talks about how she did her own stunts for the guerrilla-style film, which received a handful of positive reviews.
“I was laying on a piece of cardboard holding onto the rope and there were some guys pulling me down, and I was bouncing off the walls getting rug burns on my butt,” Cassidy said of that scene. Ouch! Well, it was totally believable if you ask us. We were squirming in our seats!
The Gallows takes place twenty years after a horrific accident happens in a small town school play. As current students attempt to reenact the play, things take an unexpected and rather twisted turn. The independent horror flick hits theaters July 10.
