CHAIN OF DEATH (2019) Overview


‘Everyone dies on their own terms.’

Chain of Death aka The Chain is a 2019 American-Spanish horror thriller about an assisted suicide company that promises to ease the pain and suffering for those involved.

Directed by David Martín Porras from a screenplay co-written with Andres Rosende, the movie stars John Patrick Amedori, Madeline Zima, Adrienne Barbeau, Ray Wise, Jamie Clayton and Neus Asensi.


Doctor Mike Colleman (Amedori) is a brilliant young doctor who’s married to the girl of his dreams while enjoying the big city life. The fairy-tale lifestyle comes to a screeching halt as Mike learns that his mother Emma (Barbeau) can no longer take care of his father (Wise), whose health is in a downward spiral.

Soon Mike learns that he too suffers from the exact same neurological illness as his father and decides to voluntarily enter a ‘Chain’ of assisted suicides in an effort to end his own misery. There’s only one catch: if you want to die, you must kill someone first…


Chain of Death was released on VOD platforms and on DVD on July 30, 2019.
