‘Dead Mail’ Trailer: When A Note Leads To Murder…

dead mail

Have you ever wondered what happens to those lost letters that never reached their destination? In their new film Dead Mail, co-directors and co-writers Joe DeBoer and Kyle McConaghy use such a thought as a framework for their strange and fascinating new thriller. This film is all about the vibe, which you can get a taste of in the new teaser trailer below.

But first, read the full synopsis:

On a desolate, Midwestern county road, a bound man crawls towards a remote postal box, managing to slide a blood-stained plea-for-help message into the slot before a panicking figure closes in behind him. The note makes its way to the county post office and onto the desk of Jasper, a seasoned and skilled “dead letter” investigator, responsible for investigating lost mail and returning it to its sender. As he investigates further, Jasper meets Trent, a strange yet unassuming man who has taken up residence at the men’s home where Jasper lives. When Trent unexpectedly shows up at Jasper’s office, it becomes clear he has a vested interest in the note, and will stop at nothing to retrieve it…

Now watch the film’s first trailer:

From letters to blow torches, Dead Mail has it all, all filtered through the lens of the 90s. If you love retro vibes and weird Midwesterners, keep this film on your radar.

Sterling Macer, Jr., John Fleck, Susan Priver, Micki Jackson, Tomas Boykin, and Nick Heyman star in the film.

Dead Mail has its world premiere on March 9, 2024, at SXSW.
