Glacial pacing and a series of highly unlikely plot contrivances manage to obscure positive attributes and leave you feeling like you've just seen a rather mediocre TV movie-of- the-week.

We definitely could use more wholesome teenage flicks, but Hangman's Curse is just plain hokum -- not so much for the values it tries to convey, but the slipshod way it conveys them.

Unless you suspend all rationality, The Hangman's Curse makes little sense

The story makes little sense, while offering few surprises and even fewer scares...it might be a cinematic act of faith for some, but simply as a movie it's a travesty.
