3.0 out of 5 stars YOU'VE GOT MAIL Feb. 12 2011
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
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 Feb. 3 2011
By Cory T. Shaeffer - Published on Amazon.com
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.

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 chain letters... lol Oct. 19 2014
By B. E Jackson - Published on Amazon.com

Chain Letter is only scary for people who are taken aback or feel concerned whenever they receive messages through email or facebook that say "Send this to 10 other people or else!" Some people actually feel uncomfortable and fear the consequences unless they send it to 10 other people. I know crazy right! That's basically what a chain letter is, and what makes up the plotline to this "horror".

Now I'm willing to give this movie a little bit of a break because despite the bottom of the barrel choice for a plot that's way too typical of the modern age we live in grasping for anything to wrap a movie around, there actually ARE a few decent moments in Chain Letter. I enjoy the death of a person chained to the back of two cars, so when the cars drive down the road the person chained gets smacked around experiencing bumps and bruises in graphic fashion. This is especially thrilling when the lady in the right car looks in the mirror while stopping at a red light and realizes there's a body attached to the back of her car but... she can't warn the guy in the other car in time as he speeds off so yeah, that poor body, haha. For additional effect maybe they should have filmed these particular scenes somewhere in Pennsylvania, har har! In case you don't know, PA has some extremely bumpy roads. Would have been ideal I tell ya!

Anyway the other deaths involving a girl rather realistically dying after a spear goes through her head is pretty cool, as is the one where the teenage boy gets his face ripped apart by a chain tightening across his face. I can't even imagine what it would feel like to have a chain smash my face in such a way. Maybe these deaths aren't original at all but I've never seen them before in other films so for now I'll consider them nice moments of creativity. How about that guys head who gets squashed like a supersized bug while looking at his car motor, haha. Blood just dunks out of his head like a giant bin of red pudding.

Otherwise the storyline is just really bad. The acting is below average (the brother and sister arguing over a computer with childish insults is plain writing) and the cop detective going around figuring out clues wasn't a good actor either and seemed somewhat arrogant and inappropriate for his role. Lousy acting all around by everybody. Only the deaths can save this one. It's passable only for the deaths, but please, if you know what a chain letter is and have received them online, you'll probably end up mocking or flat out disliking the choice to base an entire script around the subject. It's just not worthy enough for a horror film.
5.0 out of 5 stars Don't read text Aug. 23 2014

Very deadly game that someone has put onto your phone so everyone thinks it's a game of fun. Rules are for everyone and there is no turning back once you receive this text message also no changing your mind so lets continue with a few more clues, A group of six students get the message and most unravel the secret or die trying with the clock ticking they are racing against time. The torture begins when they fail to keep the chain letter going. How silly are they not doing as they were told. While they are trying to solve the mystery more challenges emerge making it harder so that the killer can continue his quest. So how many friends survive that is the question for you to find out. Fantastic acting with the storyline just as great, I rated this an A grade plus for the twist and turns that keep you tuned in right to the very end. Show is very different so it means that you'll have to go and collect this great movie to watch, now with no more clues, leaving you in mid air or out on a limb as the saying goes. I'm not spoiling the movie for you by saying to much. Popcorn time with show in hand sitting with feet up relaxing in your favourite chair, now for a night in with a fabulous movie that has thrills by the minute keeping you alert right to the end known as entertainment plus. Enjoy!
