A person's wedding should be the happiest event in their life. Not so for one bride who receives a note shortly before the wedding saying the person she is marrying is a serial killer. With the wedding in full swing, she must make a choice to believe the note or to pass it off as a stupid prank. But when she notices her groom acting rather odd, she wonders if there is truth behind the note's mortifying words. Written by bioguyver43

A Chilling Wedding Scenario!
4 July 2008 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

A young bride is getting married. She receives a note from the priest via a woman who entered the church before the ceremony. It reads that the person you may be marrying is a serial killer. Despite her doubts, she goes through with the wedding ceremony at the church. Her brother has yet to appear. Her husband's parents died under a cloud of mystery. She begins to wonder why the woman would leave such a horrendous note. Her new husband makes a confession but it is not until the end which we know the truth about the mystery woman, the note, and who it was for. It was kind of great moment but it ended too soon without an explanation as to why it happened. I thought it was chilling and original and the kind of series that I looked forward to seeing again on television. I haven't been than interested in a television show in a long time that kept me up so late in a long time.
