I read a book when i was younger called chain letter by christopher pike. i think that storyline would have been better for this movie. the only real good part abouyt this movie was the murders. They were real gory.

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!

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.

The Internet Doesn't Work That Way! Jan. 11 2013
By Marty Kingsley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
How my ratings work:
5 - I really liked/loved it
4 - I liked it
3 - Could've been better/worth a look
2 - Just didn't live up to the potential
1 - Simply awful

SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!

You'd think that by now Hollywood would know how computers and the internet works. For those that don't know, the internet doesn't produce static nor does it flash barcodes. I guess Hollywood folk assume that because computers have a screen like TVs have a screen then that must mean they produce static. That would be incorrect because TVs (old ones anyway) have different internal working compared to computers. Not that this can make a movie bad, so let's get to the actual review.

This movie is awful! Someone decides to kill people because they don't spread spam, wow, that's just wow. Also, like most modern horror films, we barely get to know the main characters, and if we do they aren't that interesting or they're sucky characters so we don't care what happens to them. I hate seeing Keith David and Brad Dourif slumming it in movies like this because both are so much better. I gotta say, 5 years really does affect how some people look, because Noah Segan looked more like a high school student in the 2005 film Brick (course he was around 22 then) than he does in this movie. That's another actor who's way better than this crap. I'll give it this, the movie looks good and the gore effects are decent and it's nice to see practical effects, but there are way better movies than this that have good gore (example: John Carpenter's The Thing, The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn, pretty much any of the original Nightmare on Elm Street films, and so many more). Even the Saw films, for the most part, at least attempt to make you care about the victims. And the motivations of the killer are never made clear, and they hint at some stupid anti tech cult but they never confirm if it's them.

Starting the movie off as a flashback is rarely a good idea, unless it gives you a chance to get to know the main character and actually cares what happens to them. This is not one of those movies. It's amazing how two people don't notice chains hooked up to their cars, or that they're garage door is slightly open. Then there's the fact that the girl chained up decides to lift her head up as she's being dragged, so of course she hits her head on the door. And finally there's the fact that he dad doesn't notice she's chained to the car and continues to drive and it splits her in half and one of her friends is running after the car shouting her name. Hate to break it to you dude, but you don't usually survive getting split in half so yelling her name won't make her less dead. I like to imagine that the dad didn't notice the parts of his daughter dragging behind his car till he got to work (sorry, I have a dark sense of humor like that) and then he puked his brains out.

There really is nothing much you can say about the movie itself because it just drags on and on and nothing really happens. Once again Hollywood, learn how the internet works and stop adding static to the internet. It doesn't make you look stylish, it makes your movie look stupid. I realize this isn't a very well put together review, but the movie wasn't well put together so I think it's a fair trade.

Gory Slasher Madness Jan. 25 2012
By awesomep - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

Would be more interesting if it were about chain smoking Jan. 11 2013
By walletboyniac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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!
