Review: ‘Mayhem’ is an Entertaining, Rage-Fueled Adventure

If you’ve ever worked an office job wherein every single one of your bosses has been promoted above his/her aptitude, you know what futility feels like. You slave away at your cubicle to reach beyond your pay grade only to have someone that knows nothing about what you do — or worse, throws you under the bus for something you’ve never even heard about — derail everything with the stroke of a pen or click of a button. What’s your recourse? Unless they stupidly cc’d you on the smoking gun email that sealed your fate, there is none. You will simply fade away as your career and life is dismantled for no other reason than your adversary possessing higher clearance. You fantasize about your revenge, ultimately resigning yourself to retail.

Well, screenwriter Matias Caruso feels your anguish, so much so he’s written a rage-fueled adventure depicting

Movie Review – Mayhem (2017)

Mayhem, 2017.

Directed by Joe Lynch.

Starring Steven Yeun, Samara Weaving, Caroline Chikezie, Kerry Fox, Mark Frost, Dallas Roberts, Claire Dellamar, André Eriksen, Nikola Kent, Lucy Chappell, Annamaria Serda, and Steven Brand.

Synopsis:

A virus spreads through an office complex causing white collar workers to act out their worst impulses.

Allow me to describe the opening moments of Mayhem, which will immediately determine whether it is for you or not. Steven Yeun’s (Glenn from The Walking Dead) Derek narrates a short sequence detailing a virus known as the ID-7 Red Eye plague, which essentially sends everyone’s mind haywire forcing them to indulge on any impulse they may have, with strongly heightened craving. Thirsts for violence, emotional outbursts, sex drives… they’re all beyond control, as an employee gruesomely murders a co-worker while another group goes at each sexually on an office table like jackrabbits. This is all in black and white,

‘Demons’ Review

Stars: Miles Doleac, Lindsay Anne Williams, Andrew Divoff, John Schneider, Steven Brand, Kristina Emerson, Gary Grubbs | Written and Directed by Miles Doleac

Eight years ago, Father Colin Hampstead oversaw an aborted exorcism that resulted in the gruesome death of seventeen-year-old Jewel Grant, in rural Louisiana. The deceased girl’s older sister, Kayleigh, grew immediately attached to Hampstead and sought him out, at first for grief counseling and then, for much more. Eight years later, Hampstead has left the priesthood and become a celebrated fiction writer, specializing in stories about the occult, and he and Kayleigh, now his wife, have a beautiful daughter and run a well-known bed and breakfast in Savannah, Ga. When the couple agrees to host a wedding for one of Colin’s college friends, what begins as a Big Chill-type reunion turns into something much more macabre, as the seemingly omnipresent ghost of her dead sister Jewel
