Storyline

A psychological thriller that takes you through the mind of convicted killer, Michael Raine, and his experiences on death row. Was he guilty of killing his girlfriend or was he a victim of a conspiracy to frame him for a crime he didn't commit? As the story unfolds Jessica Foster, an assistant to the Governor of Tennessee begins to interview Raine while on death row, claiming that she's writing a book about the inmates. Through various circumstances, Raine puts two and two together and builds a case that he believes can prove his innocence...or does he? Ms. Foster is the only one on the 'outside" who can give Raine a voice, but is she working for those who framed him? As time draws near to the date of his execution, in his most desperate hour Raine finds the missing pieces to the puzzle to prove his innocence, but is it too late...? Was this story told from Raine's point of view or from the book writers or from yours, the viewer - you decide. Written by nemo

Inspirational!
17 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first heard and read that the lead singer of Poison was staring in a movie I just had to see it. I kept checking the newspapers hoping that it would be showing in one of them but much to my disappointment it didn't. When I became a member of Netflix the movie A Letter From Death Row was my first choice. Not only did Bret write the music for his first time acting but was also Written by, Directed by, Produced by, did his own stunts and from what I have heard and read in interviews he did more behind the scenes work as well. Most people see him as a 80s hair metal rock star, but IMO Bret Michaels is a modern day Renaissance Man.

I really hope he not only continues his music career but continues doing other side projects as well!
