After its world premiere at the 2024 SXSW FILM FESTIVAL, Dead Mail has released its trailer to the public. But first, what is Deam Mail?

In a remote Midwestern county, a mysterious bound man desperately crawls towards a postal box, slipping a blood-soaked plea for help inside just before his pursuer catches up. The message lands in the hands of Jasper, a seasoned investigator of “dead mail” at the county post office. So, as Jasper delves into the case, he crosses paths with a peculiar man named Trent, who has a hidden agenda tied to the note. With Trent’s relentless pursuit escalating, Jasper must race against time to unravel the mystery and protect the secrets hidden within the dead mail.



Dead Mail stars Sterling Macer, Jr. (Where the Crawdads Sing), John Fleck (The Orville), Susan Priver, Micki Jackson, Tomas Boykin, and Nick Heyman. The film is co-directed as well as co-written by Joe DeBoer and Kyle McConaghy.

On a desolate, Midwestern county road, a bound man crawls towards a remote postal box, managing to slide a blood-stained plea-for-help message into the slot before a panicking figure closes in behind him. The note makes its way to the county post office and onto the desk of Jasper, a seasoned and skilled “dead letter” investigator, responsible for investigating lost mail and returning it to its sender. As he investigates further, Jasper meets Trent, a strange yet unassuming man who has taken up residence at the men’s home where Jasper lives. When Trent unexpectedly shows up at Jasper’s office, it becomes clear he has a vested interest in the note, and will stop at nothing to retrieve it…
