Throughout his career, filmmaker Joe Lynch has given us fantastic movies that have spanned both the horror and action genres, including Wrong Turn 2, the "Zom-b-Movie" segment of Chillerama, Knights of Badassdom, Everly, and his latest movie, Mayhem, which recently enjoyed its world premiere at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival.
Written by Matias Caruso, Mayhem follows a corporate attorney named Derek (Steven Yeun), who's trapped inside his office building with hundreds of fellow employees during a viral outbreak that causes the infected to be unable to control their primal urges. Chaos ensues as the co-workers begin to wage war against each other the longer the virus rages on.
Daily Dead had the chance to speak with Lynch after the first SXSW screening of Mayhem in Austin, and he chatted about the trepidation he felt going into the film’s world premiere, the journey to getting Mayhem made, working with Yeun, and more. »

Dario Argento’s most personal film is also his most insane.
According to Susan Sontag (as paraphrased by 80s All Over co-host Scott Weinberg), camp is defined is failed seriousness. That insight not only speaks volumes to what the Junkfood Cinema podcast admires about certain cult and b-movies, but also brings into sharp focus the bizarre paradox of Dario Argento’s 1985 psychic giallo thriller Phenomena; a movie so bizarre that most people don’t recognize how personal a film it was for its director…and how legitimately good it is.
Alias Creepers, Phenomena is the story of a young girl named Jennifer (played by Jennifer Connelly in one of her first on screen appearances) who comes to a boarding school in Switzerland just as a serial killer is butchering women in the area. Jennifer, it turns out, has the ability to communicate with insects which, in any other movie, would be the most unusual element. In »

Not only was he behind the super fun Wrong Turn sequel, but he directed Salma Hayek in the Die Hard-esque Everly, and went LARPing with Knights of Badassdom. Next up is Mayhem, which pairs Lynch with “The Walking Dead” star Steven Yeun and Samara Weaving, an Australian actress who toplines McG’s upcoming horror movie The Babysitter. The film, penned […] »

When a rogue scientist discovers an immense egg in the dark recesses of a rainforest he thinks hes stumbled across his fame and fortune. But little does he know that it belongs to a terrifying hybrid monster, known only as the Piranhaconda (a moniker only mentioned once in the Entire film and dismissed as a stupid name!). Soon the beast is on the loose, hunting for its unborn child, rampaging through the country and destroying everything in its path in a mass of CGI-enhanced gory-glory.
A killer-creature B-movie from the Roger Corman staple, Piranhaconda is yet another made for Syfy TV movie suprisingly this one comes from director Jim Wynorski, who is well-known in the horror community for successfully mixing T&A and horror. »
