After his last film – Everly – I proclaimed myself a Joe Lynch fan and have since been eagerly awaiting his next endeavor. That wait is almost over and today brought our first look at his next journey into ultra-violent insanity – Mayhem – via a trailer.
Ok – I know what you’re thinking – “haven’t we seen this movie before? Wasn’t it called The Belko Experiment?” Sure – the similarities can’t be denied but seriously – how many of you actually watched The Belko Experiment? Yeah – that’s what I thought. You’ve probably already noticed that Steven Yuen stars in this one – seems he’s all healed up from the beating that Negan gave him and is ready to take the film world by storm. Also along for the ride are Samara Weaving, Dallas Mark Roberts, Caroline Chikezie, Mark Stewart Frost, Kerry Fox, and Steven Brand. Synopsis: “Derek Cho (Steven Yeun) is having a really bad day. After being unjustly fired from his job, he discovers that the law firm’s building is under quarantine for a mysterious and dangerous virus. Chaos erupts throughout the office as the victims of the disease begin acting out their wildest impulses. Joining forces with a former client (Samara Weaving) who has a grudge of her own, Derek savagely fights tooth and nail to get to the executives on the top floor and settle the score once and for all.” Nov. 10th is the rollout date – theatrical in some regions – VOD for all.
