Corporate satire shocker Mayhem releases official — and bloody — SXSW poster
In the wake of the hype surrounding another upcoming corporate bloodbath thriller, Greg McLean and James Gunn’s The Belko Experiment, Avva Pictures and Royal Viking Entertainment recently released the official SXSW poster for their own cubiclesploitation (we made that up… do you like it?) shocker Mayhem. The film stars The Walking Dead‘s Steven Yeun — recovering nicely from the blows of Negan’s bat — and is directed by contemporary horror master Joe Lynch (Chillerama).
Synopsis: A dangerous virus, one that prevents the infected from controlling their inhibitions, is discovered in a corporate law building, 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 is an official selection of the SXSW Midnighters program. We’ll spill release details and more when we get them!
