[Review] Mayhem (2017): – Joe Lynch Delivers the Gory, Gruesome Goods – Christopher G. Moore

Award-winning filmmaker Christopher G. Moore steps into the reviewers’ circle to tackle the latest epic from director Joe Lynch, the violent action-comedy gorefest Mayhem (2017) featuring Steven Yuen and Samara Weaving in the lead roles. Christopher sings high praises for the film, championing the direction, the acting, the script, and the…mayhem. It’s the best Joe Lynch film yet, displaying his maturing into becoming a top-tier action genre filmmaker. Steven Yuen proves he can carry a film as the lead and Samara Weaving impresses in the role of Melanie Cross – if you saw her in The Babysitter, this is no surprise. Lots of gore for hardcore horror fans make Mayhem the perfect combination of blood and violence for Gruesome Magazine listeners and readers. Christopher says “Check it out!”
