Brutally Violent Trailer For Mayhem with Steven Yeun is Like The Office Meets The Purge

I've got a crazy-ass trailer for a balls-to-the-walls action film called Mayhem that is just insanely brutal! The movie is described in one of the reviews as a being like The Office meets The Purge. This is a pretty hardcore trailer that doesn't seem to hold back on the violence. You've got blood splatting all over the place!

As far as the story goes, it centers around an office building full of people being exposed to a deadly virus that causes the infected people to lose their inhibitions and go crazy. The kind of crazy that makes them want to kill each other. It also follows a recently fired employee played by Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) and a wronged client who have to fight their way through the madness. It looks like an incredibly entertaining flick worth watching, especially if you're into bloody violent movies. 

The movie co-stars Samara Weaving,

Sitges Review: Joe Lynch's 'Mayhem' is a Violent Takedown of Greed

Bring down the whole damn house! Indie filmmaker Joe Lynch's (Everly, Knights of Badassdom) new film is another violent, deranged, totally crazy, totally fun film titled Mayhem. The title, which is a bit vague, doesn't have much to do with the plot - which is actually about a guy who works at a sleazy legal corporation that decides to take on the executives when a virus causes everyone to go crazy. I saw this film at 1Am with a crowd of horror fans at the Sitges Film Festival, which is the perfect time and place to see this kind of film, because they cheered at all the right moments. If you watch this one at home, it just won't hit as hard, but it's still a thoroughly entertaining horror action comedy mashup with a worthwhile message at the end of it. The concept for Mayhem is fairly simple, enriched with some fun characters.

War for the Planet of the Apes movie review: empathy for the ape

MaryAnn’s quick take… A triumph of science fiction storytelling: a sweeping tale of mythological scope told with astonishing FX wizardry that brings emotion and intelligence to nonhuman people. I’m “biast” (pro): love this series

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

A quick recap. First there was 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in which sad scientist James Franco accidentally created a genius ape in Caesar, and his colleague mad scientists accidentally created and released a supervirus that killed most of humanity. Then there was 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, set 10 years later, in which the uneasy detente between the growing new civilization of smart apes and a small cluster of surviving humans was shattered by mistrust and unhealable pain on both sides.

SXSW 2017 Interview: Joe Lynch Unleashes Mayhem at This Year’s Festival

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.

First Official Trailer for Action Film 'Kill Ratio' Starring Tom Hopper

"You are witnessing history today." XLrator Media has debuted a trailer for an indie action movie titled Kill Ratio, which looks like another formulaic action flick. The plot involves an American covert operative who becomes the one man who can save an entire country when a "ruthless military leader" attempts a coup. Tom Hopper (from "Black Sails", "Merlin" and Knights of Badassdom) stars, with Lacy Moore, Amy Huberman, Nick Dunning, Conor Hegarty, Brian McGuinness and Michelle Lehane. This looks particularly cheesy, especially considering it's another action movie that takes place inside of one building. The sword fight at the end nearly made me roll my eyes. I'm not expecting much from this, but who knows. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Paul Tanter's Kill Ratio, direct from YouTube: An attack on the new President of a fledgling Eastern European democracy pits an American covert operative (Tom Hopper) against
