Movie Review: Mayhem

If you were allowed to do anything you've been suppressing to do for a long time, what will it be?

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to see Mayhem with a few privileged individuals from the entertainment industry. I do not have the slightest idea of what I was going to watch, all I knew is a foreign film and the logo on the movie poster says film festival - that alone tells me it's awesome. Mayhem is top billed by Steven Yeun, Samara Weaving, and Steven Brand, directed by Joe Lynch of the famed movie: Wrong Turn 2.

I loved every second of the movie. It's like playing Doom, my favorite game. A rare movie succeeding on all aspects; each character, script, and scenario making the film worth repeat viewings. The movie flowed smoothly from scene to scene. Following the success of Train to Busan, everybody is expecting the surge of similar flicks. Mayhem is not another zombie movie. It is a story about the spread of a virus reaching national proportions. The kind that affects the brains of the affected ones and how they think, a virus encouraging you to do whatever the hell you like to do but can't. What happens if it spreads in an office complex where co-workers have grudges against their bosses, colleagues or the recruitment staff? What will they do if they allow themselves to freely express their affection to someone they desire? In a tall tower that needs to be locked up for a certain amount of time, how are the victims going to sustain their sanity or stay alive? It will leave you wondering what office supplies is the best weapon for protection or for assault.

If you're into gore, then this one's for you. It's both fun and exciting. The high level of action scenes are consistent from start to end. The story line is realistic and it will keep you constantly on the edge of your seat. Creativity is at its best.

It's totally bad ass! Watch before anybody else you know.
