A game in which one player chooses a word whose letters are guessed at by another player.... Local hangman Harry is unaware of the recent abolition of hanging in Great Britain, and everyone, including his old assistant Syd, and the peculiar Mooney, are just dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news. In whole, "The Hangmen" plays like an unbearably bad R-rated TV movie from the '80s. If not for the subsequent success of Sandra Bullock, this would have NEVER found its way to DVD.
The bad guy turns and fires his gun in their direction - only two shots - as they all dive or fall to the floor, before the security man guns him down. The identities of the hangmen were kept secret. Times, Sunday Times (2006) They forget that he is present so that he hears gory talk about gibbets and hangmen.
