    Yet another impressive film from director Adam Mason

    Adam Mason’s latest film ”Hangman” is the tale of a creepy, disturbed
    home invasion. The story unfolds sequentially, both from the
    perspective of an innocent family who set out on holiday, only to
    return to find their home ransacked; and their twisted tormentor who is
    far from content at leaving it there.

    Shot entirely using security cameras and hand held video recorders,
    Hangman benefits from Mason’s fast, punchy editing to create a more
    dynamic, hard-hitting way of storytelling than is usually seen with
    this style of film making.

    The cast throughout are excellent. Jeremy Sisto (Law and Order) and
    Kate Ashfield (Shaun of the Dead) have a great chemistry, both
    delivering credibly as concerned parents under attack. The child cast
    members, Ryan Simpkins and Ty Simpkins, again play well against each
    other as squabbling, playful siblings. Together the close knit family
    gradually realise that home is no longer the safe haven it once was. My
    personal favourite character however was Eric Michael Cole, who
    portrays the demented intruder. Rather than balls to the wall
    intensity, Cole’s subtle shades create a genuinely unsettling
    experience, which really helped to amp up the tension. His barefooted,
    masked, knife wielding psychopath preyed upon an unknowing family,
    literally tempting fate for his moment to strike. In fact, the standout
    moments of Hangman are during these ”will he, won’t he?” scenes, when
    the intruder takes chances, pushes his luck and gets as close as
    possible to the family without actually coming face to face. I’ve been
    a long-time fan of British director Adam Mason, from first watching Pig
    back in 2010. He’s a bold story teller, with a growing list of
    memorable and twisted movies to his credit. Mason likes to deliver a
    final punch in the last scene of his films, and Hangman is no
    exception. Yet another solid piece of work to add to his impressive
    filmography, well worth investing your time in.

    Special mention also needs to be given to film’s composer Antoni
    Maiovvi (https://maiovvi.bandcamp.com/). His chilling distorted Italo
    disco brings sinister echoes of John Carpenter, Goblin and Tangerine
    Dream.

    ”Hangman”: Hang this crapfest out to dry and then leave it there to rot!

    Rarely have I come away from a movie viewing experience, hell, ANY
    experience, feeling as despondent and dismal as I did after suffering
    through the spirit slaying swill of ”Hangman”.

    This alleged inspiration (the filmmakers claim, because there wasn’t a
    DAMN thing inspiring about ANY of this stinking cesspool) by true
    events tracks through multi-concealed cameras a masked maniac as he
    terrorizes a suburban family of four while hiding inside their home. As
    near as I can surmise this depraved debacle was efforting to explore
    through character study the sliced up psyche of a gutted soul in search
    of love never shared with his own kin. But that notion is almost as
    laughable as the myriad of unintentionally albeit darkly comical scenes
    where this rancid animal literally stood right next to various
    household members yet remained COMPLETELY UNDETECTED!

    ”Hangman” imposes upon it’s (hopefully LIMITED) audience a festering
    crapload of degenerate diligence just to hear a mother tell you she
    loves you. And the nightmare never sleeps ending is ripped right off
    without variation from other movies eons superior to this festival of
    feces.

    But hey now, if you wanna spend about an hour and a half of your time
    on this planet watching a whack-job voyeur engineer the demolition of
    an innocent couple and their kids, then be my guest.

    Just don’t come this way with your head hangin’ low and lookin’ for
    sympathy. I tried to tell ya.

    Seriously do not bother

    I have rarely watched a movie that is so boringly sick. Imagine if you
    will a writer or director who is both a very boring person and also
    morally sick, and you have the people who came up with this movie.
    There are few movies I can think of which have both bored the absolute
    poop out of me while simultaneously making me feel like I just licked
    the toilet bowl. Most of my reviews come with spoilers because I love
    story, its structure and process. This one doesn’t have any spoilers
    because I wouldn’t want to describe this movie to you, it doesn’t
    deserve it. Just move on and pretend it doesn’t exist, you are missing
    nothing other than cinematic excrement. The writer and director should
    just give up cinema and find something else to do – maybe working at
    McDonald’s, something more suited to their talents. IMDb should provide
    a zero rating or perhaps negative numbers, and then I could have voted
    more accurately. An unentertaining, vile, and nasty turd of a movie.
    Yechhh.

    Low-budget reached an all new low.

    Man terrorizes a family seen through a multi web-cam type setup. That’s
    it. Remove acting, character building, drama, tension or any of the
    myriad of things that could make a movie watchable. Hangman simply
    picks up the Paranormal Activity snoozetorch, and manages to do
    absolutely nothing with it. There are home movies made by kids on
    youtube that look stellar in comparison to Hangman. Not even kidding
    here. Had to scrub through the last third of the ”film”. Possible the
    lowest quality film I’ve ever seen. The fake review of the film here on
    IMDb was the most entertaining moment I had watching Hangman. They’re
    just too funny and always written the same way.

    Well I thought it was good

    I’m not sure why this movie has so many bad reviews.

    I thought it was a pretty decent movie. The acting was pretty good for
    the most part. I quite liked the story. Nothing really to talk about
    for special effects, which isn’t a bad thing.

    The premise of the movie is fairly realistic too, which adds to the
    suspense I think. If it’s something that could happen to you it adds to
    the tension.

    The suspense is slowly built up and I found the portrayal of the main
    character very realistic. The writers obviously did their homework on
    psychopaths. He’s very damaged and shows several ranges of emotion, all
    without saying anything until near the end of the movie.

    If you like suspense with a little bit of horror, I’d recommend it.

    Not a Horror to me but more a intense thriller

    Well I am a Horror fan and so picking this for that reason but alas it
    was not such a horror as it seemed. Having said that i was on the edge
    of my seat a number of times as the suspense of the next act was upon
    me.

    A film that kept me and my partner entertained and with a cast of
    people i have not seen before except for Kate Ashfield who played a
    lead role in Shaun of the Dead. it played out well, mostly set in a
    Suburban House in America with a few outdoor scenes it really was a
    good thriller. It was no slasher film nor was there any brutal scenes
    barring a little towards the end but it did not need it. The fact that
    things like this do happen in real life kept the buzz going and kinda
    made me think a little on the way we secure our car and home in the
    future. how some reviews are totally destroying this i cannot see, it
    was not a massive big budget film full of high end CGI but a nice
    evening film which was entertaining, it didn’t need lots of action,
    overall a great film.

    A thriller without any suspense nor tension

    I’ll have to admit,Hangman have a rather interesting and provoking
    premise. But,that’s as far as what you can get from this movie. All you
    will get is a ”thriller” movie that fails as a thriller,lacks in
    thrills,lacks of character,Plot-less and empty storyline,cringe worthy
    dialogue,and an Editing so bad,it feels like you’re watching a high
    school student’s film project. I know that this movie is a low- budget
    indie movie,but this movie is just pitiful.and the main plot of the
    story itself lacks in explanations,and it will leave you scratching
    your head on what’s the point of the story,and what’s going on in this
    movie.

    It has a sloppy visual editing,and a sound editing so bad,that in some
    unnecessary scenes,there’s a sound that will blow your eardrums without
    any apparent reason. It also has a soundtrack that really didn’t
    help,or maybe ruin a scene that’s supposed to be tense.

    If you are looking for a full of tense,groundbreaking,jittery
    independent horror flick,then this movie is not for you.Period.

    Terrible. Full of clich├ęs, bad acting, low budget found footage.

    Hangman is yet another found footage horror film. It is unoriginal in
    nearly every way, from the character’s stupid actions all the way down
    to the killer having no reason to do the stuff he does other than he’s
    absolutely insane. This movie has been done many times before and in
    much better ways.

    The only redeeming qualities of this film are Kate Ashfield’s
    performance, which was decent but nothing to write home about, and the
    last five minutes, which are somewhat intense. But that’s it. The film
    is distasteful, poorly acted, poorly written, slow, boring, unoriginal,
    and a lot of it doesn’t make sense. There were a few times the main
    characters could have done something obvious to help themselves but
    they just didn’t for some reason.Yeah, it’s one of those movies. It’s
    infuriating to see characters be so stupid and oblivious to everything
    going on around them. Takes me right out of the film.

    This movie was an hour and twenty-four minutes long but it felt like
    two god damn hours.

    Stay away from this.

    2/10

    Ignore the hate – a genuinely disturbing movie

    I’m really surprised at the negative reception of the film, so went
    into this film expecting to turn it off after 10 minutes. However,
    given that the majority of raters probably also contributed to rating
    the awful borefest that is ‘Gravity’ a 7.8/10, I should’ve done what I
    normally do and completely ignored the ratings and most reviews.

    ‘Hangman’ is a genuinely disturbing film. For fans of ‘real’ horror
    (and by that I mean things that absolutely could happen, disregarding
    ghosts and evil spirits), then this is perfect. Almost everything that
    happens in the film could definitely happen to people, and in various
    ways probably does. Yes, slight artistic licence has of course been
    taken, but overall this film touches way too close to home.

    The best comparison I can make is to the wonderful flick that was
    ‘Creep’ (2014), in that the main antagonist is a truly disturbed
    individual, yet undoubtedly fairly common in today’s world and most
    definitely real. The film, although slow paced, burns consistently, and
    there aren’t many dull moments.

    The ending, just like the opening sequence, are shocking, and the
    brutal moments that punctuate the film are almost too much to watch –
    yet nothing is too far-fetched.

    So, with that said, I would definitely recommend this film if you enjoy
    ‘found footage’ films in general, or are a fan of horrors where the
    events could – and probably do – happen.

    yawn

    Being shot in a kind of docu style remember paranormal activity, with
    night vision and stuff. Well it worked for a lot of scary flicks but
    here, it did not.

    The story looked promising but been done before, an intruder in house
    and staying therefor days, watching you, this time with a lot of
    camera’s and playing hide and seek, laying stuff everywhere to confuse
    his victims. But, nothing really happens. All you see is POV of the
    camera’s before his victims, really, so that means that he is walking
    in front of them. sadly, nothing really happens only stabbing a
    youngster. Towards the end, but by then it’s too late, the victims have
    to die.

    Utterly boring, avoid at all costs.

    Boreman (2015)

    Zero originality whatsoever is to be found here.

    Follows the mold of every single found footage stalker movie made just
    a little more oversimplified is all.

    With a 30 minute plot (40 at the most) stretched out to 81 minutes and
    most scenes mainly being day to day scenes of the family doing regular
    things at home this movie is far more boring than it is disturbing.

    The acting is… okay I guess, the family does act kind of like a
    family does. The stalker we only see from time to time and he’s weird I
    guess, which makes sense.

    I just looked at the credits and saw that Amy Smart was in it which
    surprised me, she was in it in retrospect but you couldn’t really see
    it was here because she was only in one scene sitting by a table with
    the ”hidden camera” being very far away.

    So yeah if she is what makes you want to watch this don’t bother. But
    then there is no real reason to bother watching this period.

    Great Movie

    I am super surprised to see all the terrible reviews for this one
    because I really enjoyed watching it. Sure, it’s not the most creepy
    ”found footage” movie out there but the acting was great and the plot
    line disturbing. I would definitely recommend this one to fellow
    viewers.

    What was this movie supposed to be?

    So after watching Hangman I really wanted to talk about this, because
    i’ve never felt so bored in my life watching a movie.

    The story has some potential but for some reason they thought this was
    the best idea. The ‘Hangman’ isn’t really doing that much of interest,
    except maybe the last 5 minutes (but not really), but I was never so
    invested that i could care. Most of the time he does some weird things
    and sometimes cries FOR NO REASON. He does all these random things and
    we’re supposed to not laugh at that?

    The only thing that I liked in this movie is the fact that they only
    use the camera standpoint of the cameras he set up. So the audience
    only sees trough the cameras he sees, that’s why it gets a 2 and not a
    1. The family is kinda developed but that doesn’t save this film, it’s
    supposed to be a Horror/ Thriller movie, but all I did was laugh (and
    be very confused) when the ‘Hangman’appeared.

    I do NOT recommend watching this, I am not a fan of scary movies and I
    get scared very easy. I didn’t once felt suspense…
