Do people still send out chain letters? I haven’t gotten one in my e-mail inbox for years now, but I guess the new trend is to spam people on MySpace instead. Such is the case in Deon Taylor’s horror flick Chain Letter, which is currently in production.
We were tipped off by our bud Joey M. that the official site for the pic has been updated with a trailer for the film and a lengthy synopsis (part of which is below).
Chain Letter‘s plot involves a group of six friends from Carlson High School who receive a mysterious chain letter that moves from their email accounts and text messaging to a creepy little icon that begins haunting their My Space pages.
Who knew they should take the threats of these messages seriously? Or that chain letters can kill?
As the friends battle the curse or a perpetrator targeting them – how can they know for sure??? – friendships are tested once the ominous message begins killing them in the more gruesome ways imaginable, turning one friend against another, with “rules” that seem impossible to escape: The chain letter must be passed to the person you know best and have seen over the past 24 hours. That person must open the letter. Break the chain and a horrible death awaits you. Beat it and you just might live.
Do you pass it on? Does friendship mean anything?
