Didn't Quite Rattle My Chains,
This review is from: Chain Letter (Unrated) (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.
