I don’t know about you, but I still vividly remember my amazement the first time I saw Kill Bill. Especially the scene in which the bride stands alone, soaked in her enemies’ blood from head to toe, after she turns the Japanese restaurant into a literal slaughterhouse.
I am quite the fan of bloody-horror, or to quote the famous A Clockwork Orange: “the old ultra-violence.”
But there are only a select few that make it to the list of movies that I think “do it just right.” Kill Bill and the zombie apocalyptic Resident Evil are on the list. Mayhem, directed by Joe Lynch, starring Steven Yeun and Samara Weaving, combines the bloody goriness of Bill Kill with the intense action of Resident Evil. Not a bad combo.
The story begins in a corporate office setting. If you too have worked in a cubicle and loathed your boss, this is something you’ll relate to.
And as for the diehard The Walking Dead fans who are following Yeun’s post-Glenn life, his performance as the leading character in the movie will definitely satisfy your Yeun fix.
Though Mayhem is full of fantastically intense gore and violence, the humor-filled dialogue lifts the mood at just the right moment.
Catch Mayhem when you can.
