    Six high school friends are bound together again by a sinister chain letter passing into their lives through e-mails and text messages. If the deadly letter isn’t passed on, the recipient faces a grisly, unexpected death – and nothing can stop it. As time runs out and the deadly letter’s rules become more challenging, the survivors must untangle the chilling secret – or die trying. Featuring Nikki Reed (The Twilight Saga), Betsy Russell (the Saw series), and Michael J. Pagan (CSI: Miami), this terrifying thriller in the tradition of The Grudge and Final Destination proves death is always watching and waiting – and anyone could be next!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't Quite Rattle My Chains February 5, 2011
    Format:DVD
    Chain Letter is a slasher movie whose plot is very reminiscent to late 90's slashers like Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Urban Legend. Only it's not as good as those, because it doesn't seem to realize that it's a teen slasher movie and takes itself way too seriously. There are a few fun death sequences in this thing, but most of them are more torture porn than teen slasher. Also, Chain Letter can be too preachy with its "technology is evil" message. And the ending is pretty disappointing. Still, I was never too bored while watching Chain Letter. The acting is very good, I will say. But how could the acting not be good when you have a cast that includes veterans like Keith David (who gets a lot of screen time), Brad Dourif, and Betsy Russell.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded my expectations... September 9, 2011
    By JadeE
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    This movie exceeded my expectations & i found it to be quite enjoyable. It is by no means brilliant however it did manage to keep me on the edge of my seat and surprised me with the ending. Much better than some that have come out lately.

    3.0 out of 5 stars YOU'VE GOT MAIL February 12, 2011
    Format:DVD
    In this age of e-mail, texting, tweeting and twittering, it's inevitable that screenwriters utilize this media as warnings about invasion of privacy and our loss of face to face communication. CHAIN LETTER is one such movie.
    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!

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Rocking Good Time February 3, 2011
    Format:DVD
    This movie is everything a horror film is supposed to be: tons of gore, a hot young cast (most of which can't act all that well), and a host of veteran actors (Brad Dourif, Keith David, Betsy Russell, etc) making appearances.

    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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing different August 19, 2013
    Format:DVD
    Someone previously commented, asking "can't they make good horror movies anymore?" Yes, but it's much less expensive to rely on gore via special effects and go right to the heart of visual terror rather than to think about the story line and pay for a good script and a good production crew. They're paid to produce as quickly as possible - kind of like buying off the rack vs. custom made. The masses are accustomed to being spoon fed their horror and they often don't distinguish between quality and the lack thereof. There's a reason all slasher movies look alike - they are. They're cookie cutter without much in the way of imagination or talent, and this movie just follows suit. A truly successful horror movie will scare the bejeevers out of you and keep you creeped out throughout the whole movie without even showing any blood. Those are the movies you think about long after you've watched them. They are few and far between but it is possible to make one. I'm waiting patiently for that to happen again as soon as Hollywood gets its head out of its tush, ponies up and pays for quality writing.

    This movie is okay. I think it is intended for a younger audience. It is okay to watch once but I don't think I will watch it again.
