First Trailer for Joe Lynch's Violent Corporate Takedown Film 'Mayhem'
"Hey, extreme measures, right?" RLJ Entertainment has unveiled the official trailer for Joe Lynch's action horror comedy Mayhem, an all-out takedown of corporate culture. The plot involves a virus that infects people and makes them go crazy, beating people up or acting out their worst impulses. When the virus takes over a corporate office building, the employees go insane and start fighting each other. One of them, Derek Cho played by Steven Yeun, decides to take matters into his own hands and fight his way to the executive level. Co-starring Samara Weaving, Steven Brand, Caroline Chikezie, Kerry Fox, Dallas Roberts, Mark Frost, Claire Dellamar, André Eriksen. I just saw this at the Sitges Film Festival and it's actually a very entertaining film, with some brutal violence and a good message at the end. Worth a watch - enjoy.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Joe Lynch's Mayhem, direct from YouTube:
When a corporate law office is quarantined after a dangerous virus that makes the infected lose their inhibitions is discovered, a recently fired employee and a wronged client must battle their way to the executive level before time runs out.
