FORMER Walking Dead star Steven Yeun topbilled the action-comedy-thriller Mayhem and it will be released in theaters nationwide by Star Cinema on November 8.
In the film, a dangerous virus, one that prevents the infected from controlling their inhibitions, is discovered in a corporate law bulding, the very same firm that recently cleared an infected man on murder charges.
When a quarantine is issued and the building goes on lockdown, all hell breaks loose inside, while a disgruntled employee (Steven Yeun) and an irate client (Samara Weaving) must fight and even kill their way to the top to “have a word” with the corrupt executives who wronged them before time runs out.
Mayhem was introduced at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and was released at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival 2017.
An Audience Award winner at Chattanooga Film Festival 2017, Fantasia Bronze Audience Winner Award 2017 and an official selection at MOTELx - Lisbon International Horror Film Festival 2017.
It currently stands with a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 97% Google users’ approval.
The film also stars Dallas Mark Roberts, Caroline Chikezie, Mark Stewart Frost, Kerry Fox, Lucy Chappell and Steven Brand.
Mayhem is directed by Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Dead End, Knights of Badassdom and Everly starring Salma Hayek), his third film premiere in Austin and first for SXSW.
