Joe Lynch’s Mayhem looks to be a hit with critics, the action-horror-comedy set in an corporate law office has been getting rave reviews since its premiere at South by Southwest.
The film stars Steven Yeun as Derek Cho, a man who is having the worst day of his life after being wrongly fired on the same day a airborne virus breaks out in his office building. This virus triggers everyones worst impulses, and what began as a fight for his job has now become a fight for survival.
The action-horror-comedy promises to deliver with a ton of great action, laughs, and a cathartic cinematic experience. What makes it even more exciting is that this will be Yeun’s first major leading role after his stint on The Walking Dead as Glenn. Genre films like this often push the boundaries of filmmaking, and now it offers us a film with and an Asian lead.
With only 14 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes the film has a 100% rating, many complimenting the films action, gore, and comedy.
Mayhem will be released in US cinemas and VOD on November 11th.
