Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"By-the-numbers horror flick is about as welcome, and entertaining, as a real chain letter."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
" of the most disastrously underwhelming and incompetent horror flicks to come around in quite some time..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Looks it was prepped, shot, and cut in one drunken weekend."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Nothing screams hackneyed repurposing like using a Nietzschean citation as preface to very non-Nietzschean drivel."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
"Chain Letter yields few surprises, compensating with de rigueur false scares, unmemorable deaths and the kind of improbably exaggerated gore."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"A bland, sloppy, paint-by-numbers slasher that crams a half-baked anti-technology theme down your throat."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"I've watched hundreds of movies - no, make that thousands - on the big screen. 'Chain Letter' has the dubious distinction of being the only movie I've ever seen that had no recognizable ending."
‑ Linda Cook, KWQC-TV (Iowa)
"The Anti-Social Network, and a stylishly creepy invasion of privacy cyber-thriller, despite an overabundance of cheesy gore. As anti-online techie terrorists go about homicidally deleting digital junkies everywhere, with You've Got Mauled deranged glee."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"Chain Letter is a nonsensical, bloody mess that, well, is missing a few links."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"One M1ssed Call meets Final Destination in this formulaic but fun gore-fest. In case you are wondering, there are chains. And letters. [it] is about as subtle as a sledgehammer, but that works in this mushy, gushy milieu."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"It's not even a real movie."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"A severely muddled, amateur offering, the film is a complete waste of time. There's almost pride in the manner the feature highlights Taylor as arguably the most inept director of 2010."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
