He's an actor. He's a director. He's a family man. Joe Lynch does it all. And, he's one of the main reasons why I tune into Movie Crypt every single week. Not THE Movie Crypt, just Movie Crypt. For those that aren't familiar with Joe, he got his first film job working with the legendary Troma Films, and the rest is history. Seriously. He hasn't stopped since. Joe went on to direct films with the likes of Peter Dinklage, Selma Hayek, among other well knowns. Instead of continuing to filate him, let's jump into his his latest feature, Mayhem.
The film follows Derek Cho (Steven Yeun), who is having a really bad day. After being unjustly fired from his job, he discovers that the law firm’s building is under quarantine. Chaos erupts throughout the office as the victims of a disease begin acting out their wildest impulses. Joining forces with a former client (Samara Weaving) who has a grudge of her own, Derek savagely fights tooth and nail to get to the executives on the top floor to settle the score.
While I typically DO admire these types of films, Mayhem's script was tailor-made for Lynch's style, and I couldn't have appreciated anyone else taking the reigns as well as he did. If you're into gore, humor, and fun, look no further because Lynch has prepared the perfect combination of mayhem just for you, me, and the weird guy down the street.
Lynch's upcoming horror, action romp will be in theaters, which is where I suggest you see it, on November 10th, but if your city isn't showing it, Mayhem will be On Demand as well. I'm ONLY sharing this information for the few of you that may have no other choice.
Who doesn't want to swoon over Steven Yeun? And, I know you want to gush over Samara Weaving. And, of course you want to pee in a bathroom full of people you will never see again. Right? Right! See this film with an audience. Hell, take the weird guy down the street. Fuck it, just see the movie!
Moving on, Joe will be making some special screening appearances, so if you're in the mood to meet the creative mind behind an ultra-violent film full of corporate corruption with a hint of Bruce Lee, be sure to follow @TheJoeLynch on Twitter to see where to find him. In conclusion, DMB still sucks... but you're cool.
