This is Lynch’s third film premiere in Austin and first for SXSW. Lynch’s previous films include cinematic classics as “Wrong Turn 2: Dead End,” “Everly, Knights Of Badassdom” with Salma Hayek in the lead role.

The story of “Mayhem” goes: A dangerous virus, one that prevents the infected from controlling their inhibitions, 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 lockdown, all hell breaks inside, while a disgruntled employee (Yeun) and an irate client (Weaving) 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.

“Mayhem” is now in cinemas nationwide.
