Synopsis: “Mayhem tells the story of a virus that infects a corporate law office on the day attorney Derek Saunders (Yeun) is framed by a co-worker and wrongfully fired. The infection is capable of making people act out their wildest impulses. Trapped in the quarantined building, our hero is forced to savagely fight tooth and nail for not only his job but his life.”
Stephen Yeun and Samara Weaving killing their way through a building of infected coworkers all while trying to stick it to the CEOs? Um, yes please, where do I sign up? Joe Lynch (who directed Salma Hayek in the highly slept-on Everly) unleashes more of his own special brand of stylized violence onto the world with Mayhem.
This one looks like something (early) Edgar Wright or Joe Carnahan would have loved to gotten a piece of! Needless to say, we’re on board – tbh, you had us at “Stephen Yeun and Samara Weaving” but with the addition of the “Smokin Aces-meets-Shaun of the Dead” vibe this one’s putting off, well – needless to say, we’re on board for what Lynch has to offer!
