From the title, you have probably gathered a bit about the plot. There is a chain letter targeting a technology-obsessed group of teens. They have to pass it on or a psychopathic killer mangles them in a most creative way.
A combination of "The Ring" and "Stay Alive," this movie avoids the excess torture of the "Saw" films, as well as the long drawn out storylines of other films of this nature. It's just a good time. There is nothing stunning or original about the film that will make it stick in your memory forever, but it satisfies the horror film lover's appetite for lots of gore, a little nudity, and an overall great time.
Sadly, the execution is pedestrian, shallow and only mildly interesting.
The 20-something "teens" as usual aren't appealing and the motivation for their gruesome deaths is left hanging and merely serves as a prelude to the inevitable sequel.
Horror vets Brad Dourif, Keith David and Betsy Russell get paychecks for their cliche roles but are unremarkable.
I was involved up until its ridiculous ending--the nail in the coffin.
Hope we start getting some decent horror flicks soon!
The acting from some was okay, except the annoying brother that was jealous of his sister. Some of the death scenes were over the top and almost funny. Not to sound heartless, but the brother getting it was sad, but a little cartoonist. A person couldn't really escape their faith after responding to the chain letter. The killer was scary looking and really enjoyed his work. He was brutal and the director enjoyed placing the camera right up close to see the tortures. One scene, I had to turn the TV down and turn my face away. It was too painful to listen to the young man's suffering. This is the part that got my daughter upset, which was a point well taken.
After all that, my sister and I enjoyed the movie for its shock value and okay story line. My daughter did not. I'am not sure if I will watch it again. So slasher fans, knock yourself out and enjoy.
