Pittsburgh, PA – September 2, 2010 – Horror Realm Convention is pleased to announce that it has been selected by New Films International to screen a sneak preview of the new horror film Chain Letter. The preview will take place on September 18, 2010 at 2 PM. The film will be released nationwide on October 1.
The film tells the tale of six friends who receive a mysterious chain letter via text messaging and in their email accounts from a maniac. With a warning that if they break the chain they will lose a life, the seemingly harmless email turns deadly when one by one the friends that do not forward the chain letter are hunted down and gruesomely killed by horror’s newest villain, the Chain Man.
Chain Letter features a great ensemble cast led by stunning Tinsel Town ingénue Nikki Reed (Twilight). A terrifying horror film that will leave audiences wondering if modern technology is as safe as we think it is, Chain Letter was created by Deon Taylor Enterprises and produced in association with the resoundingly successful Saw franchise.
