Directed by Joe Lynch
A dangerous virus 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 lock-down, all hell breaks loose inside. A disgruntled employee and an irate client 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.

Bloody, fun, full of one liners and entertainment. Draw was the distracting background characters.

"Steven Yeun plays a character who uses an apocalypse-like event to become a hot blood-soaked cheeky badass and date someone who is equally as hot, cheeky, badass and blood-soaked," is officially a Genre...
This film was super cathartic, fun and a fresh fast-paced take on the killer pathogen genre. I can't wait to see it again!
★★★★ review by Matt Donato on Letterboxd
As infection thrillers go, Mayhem spreads the good word of deconstructed civilization with furious rage. As a top-down damnation of corporate greed, Mayhem is a blood-soaked letter opener to the heart of perceived “success.” As a midnight genre flick in a contained setting, Mayhem brutalizes its way through a white-collar Dante’s Inferno built on gruesome fight choreography and an event nastier mean-streak. This is Joe Lynch’s biggest, best and wildest genre exploration, wrapped tightly around one mighty middle finger. Just another day at the office? Not in Mayhem.

If I have to be honest when it comes to how it stacks up, as a "great movie", it gets 3.5. but going by entertainment and fun factor, it's a 4.5.
