Chain Link (Work in Progress)
Teens learn the hard way that if they don't comply and pass on the messages, they pay the price for breaking the link.
A psychopathic mental patient with the gift of online hacking returns to a city he terrorized years before to play another sadistic game of "Pass It On" with an unsuspecting group of teens. If they fail to play and break the link, they pay the ultimate price.

Overall, most everything is great, but I do have a few notes.
1. I like the idea of a chain link serial killer, but his motivation also feels incredibly hokey. Everything in this story is...

'Chain Letter' feels a bit like one of those classic horror movies with the usual clichés, but it has great potential, of that I'm sure.
The concept fits in this age and makes you think twice before d...
I found that the concept of having a serial killer choose victims based on an email chain to be technologically relevant and yet oddly not glamorous. This concept seems to be a blend of the movies Unfriended and the Ring only using a lamer technology like chain link email. It is harder for me to be attracted to a...
I like the concept of a serial killer who kills people for not passing along spammy chain emails. That's super fun. The small cast so far seem interconnected, which will be helpful for paying everything off later.
There are some formatting and grammatical errors throughout, so maybe run a spell check or just read through it slowly to...
