The TWILIGHT series may not have what the average horror fan would consider to be the ideal representation of vampires and werewolves, but there was some very creepy stuff in those stories, particularly when it came to the relationships. Now actor Jackson Rathbone, who played the vampire Jasper Hale in the TWILIGHT movies, has set out to do something intentionally creepy, taking on the role of a murderer in the "cautionary high school drama" DO NOT REPLY.

Written and directed by Daniel Woltosz and Walt Woltosz, DO NOT REPLY follows 

Chelsea, a high school introvert who is abducted through a social media app and is forced to look like other girls being held captive. She desperately attempts to persuade them to escape before they all become victims in a virtual reality filmed murders. 

The idea of a killer making VR snuff films is an interesting one, I haven't heard of that before.

Rathbone's co-stars in the film include Amanda Arcuri, Kerri Medders, Elise Luthman, Ashlee Füss, Ivon Millan, Courtney Henggeler, Savannah Kennick, Thom Gossom Jr., Kaitlyn Black, Curran Walters, Nikki Leigh, Christian Hutcherson, Eddie Diaz, Kue Lawrence, John Allsop, Brandon Modelo, Matthew Raymond, Erin Siu, Alexandra Fatovich, and Rodney J. Hobbs.

The writers/directors produced the Iron Compass Entertainment project with Nicholas Paul Ybarra and Sonja Mereu. VMI Worldwide will be presenting DO NOT REPLY to potential distributors at the upcoming European Film Market.
