Incredibly Fun Satire For Genre Fans

This is just an incredibly fun satire for genre fans, and I'm a bit surprised it didn't generate larger waves. It uses the old (but not yet tired) trope of an outbreak among people trapped in a building to put a hilariously violent spin on the kind of themes Mike Judge already explored to great comedic effect in 'Office Space' (1999): what happens when a repressed, disillusioned office clerk suddenly has the liberating epiphany that he doesn't give a fû*k anymore and decides he'll stick it to his boss no matter the consequences.

Only that in this version, everyone around said clerk - from the lowest employee to the highest executive - throws their (few remaining) moral restraints over board at the same time as he does. Not through their own will, mind, but because everyone in the building is infected with a virus that makes people act out their most aggressive impulses. As you can imagine, the result of that is not peace, love and happiness - but rather... what's the word... Oh yes: bloody MAYHEM. Needless to say, I had a blast. 7 Stars out of 10.

Good way to pass the time.

Unlike a lot of reviewers, I have no idea who the actors in this movie were as I'd never seen The Walking Dead, The Babysitter, et. al. That said, I can't compare their past work to this film so I'll just briefly review it based on its own merit.

Mayhem reminded me of a few films - The Belko Experiment, Rec, etc. There isn't much on display that hasn't been seen before. I'd say the one scene I'd never witnessed before is the regurgitated use of pepper spray. Now, that was interesting.

One thing that intrigued me about this American horror film was that the lead was Asian. That's a relative rarity as far as I know. It's good to see Hollywood flexing their diversity muscles. If over the top violence is not your cup of tea, then by all means, avoid this film like the plague. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy yourself. It won't disappoint.

Fight Club: Office Edition

They messed with the wrong Steven.

Wow. I thought The Belko Experiment was great. Since I've worked in offices most of my adult life AND I love horror flicks, I adore office horror films (and some comedy ones too - thank you, Office Space.) But, this raced to the top of the Office Horror Film Subgenre.

This wildly original, funny and brutal film stars the best looking man from The Walking Dead and he probably kills more people in this than his tenure on the AMC show. And as fiction as this movie is, I can see this happening in real life in any one of the offices I've been employed at.

The movie begins with explaining a new virus that affects our "moral" behavior. Though, what I've seen since 45 took office, this might be a true story after all. I digress...

A lowly attorney in a ruthless firm is accused of mishandling a client and is fired. But, lucky for him, the aforementioned virus quarantines his office building and it's up to him and a mortgage foreclosure borrower to make it to the top and set things right.

This movie hits home to me in so many personal ways, it's hard to count. I'll try, nonetheless. Totally have a crush on Steven Yeun for starters, so that's a plus. I work in this industry and know what people are capable of. And I love horror movies that can actually happen, unlike the millions of ghost/haunted house clones of the past decade.

It's funny when it needs to be, it's very well acted and realistic and the title...totally lives up to its name. In the closing credits, this was listed as being "authored" by Rage, LLC, which means its original title was probably "Rage." Also lives up to the name, but they probably changed it due to the other virus named Rage in the 28 Days/Weeks Later films.

Almost everything works in this film aside from a few down times and one out of place sex scene. Probably just because the writer, Matias Caruso, has only done short films up to this point and to stretch one of his ideas to feature length was a bit of a struggle. Nevertheless, those can easily be forgiven as the movie keeps progressing once the speedbumps occur.

Highly recommended little gem, especially for indie-horror lovers and for ANY office worker. You'll totally empathize and be on board from almost minute one.

***

Final thoughts: After the 3 deaths of Glenn on The Walking Dead, it's nice this is the payoff. Hope he keeps going and has a very fruitful career. And not just saying that for his incredible looks. He's a pretty darn good actor, to boot.
