Editorial Reviews

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!

    Chain Letter does nothing in its first twenty minutes to distinguish itself from any other b-list horror film. It hits viewers with a few weak jump scares, all of the "teen" characters are clearly in their 20s, and it attempts to take an un-scary concept and make it terrifying.

    The concept in question is none other than the goofy chain email that threatens anyone who fails to forward it with certain death. Those people who grew up in the Age of Technology have probably received a couple dozen poorly written ones over the years- there's the one about the babysitter, the one about the serial killer, the one about... you get the idea. They're usually not very clever.

    Naturally, plenty of the high school students in Chain Letter who receive the threatening email discard it with disdain (much like I did in high school), and the massacre ensues. Students who ignore the email start dying in gruesome fashion. The killer's weapon of choice is, of course, a CHAIN. (Ha ha, get it? They didn't pass the CHAIN email, so he kills them with a CHAIN. Unbelievably clever.)

    If my obvious disdain for the film strikes the reader as a bit harsh, allow me to highlight some of its other transgressions.

    First, even though each recipient is required to forward the email to five other people, nobody ever receives it twice. Preposterous! When I received these stupid things from classmates I would usually get them from all directions, which made it very tempting to reply to each sender with a malicious comment like "I hope you die!" or "The joke is on you, fool; I'm the killer!"

    Second, even though the chain email in the film presumably makes it to hundreds of people the first night it's in circulation, it takes over THREE DAYS for a second recipient to end up dead.

    What are the odds that I'm viewing another Noah Segan (Deadgirl) high school movie? I looked him up on imdb, and he was born in 1983! Time to retire this teenage crap. Seems any movie revolving around video games/computers/technology automatically blows. This movie is no exception. Neil (Cody Kasch) receives a chain letter, and it gets passed on to four friends and relatives. Ignore it and you die. CHAIN LETTER! The box says: "As time runs out and the deadly letter's rules become more challenging, the survivors must untangle this chilling secret." I'm not sure what there is to untangle. Ignore the message, and you are treated with a visit from a giant deformed creep. A subplot about an anti-technology cult is touched upon, but not explored. Many gruesome chain-related deaths and a grim ending cannot save this turkey, turkey!

    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.

    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!

    We had a movie night with family and other family members. Horror pictures were the chosen honors. We watched a were-wolf movie and decided to look at this picture. When it was on cable, I didn't really pay attention to much of it. Since I like some gore, and saw a little bit, I bought the movie. If you are a gore hound, then this movie is for you. People died horrible deaths. I did not realize this was a slasher film, which is not one of my favorite horror genres. My daughter became upset on some of the parts. She watches too much, "Criminal Minds". She felt that the way some of the casts died, could have happened that way in real life. My sister really was having way too much fun watching this picture. I on the other hand, was hiding my face and screaming on some of the parts.

    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.
