AngryTownsman’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was an enjoyable blending of the Belko Experiment and 28 Days later. In Mayhem, a virus exists that lasts 8 hours and removes a person's filters. Normally, you would not give in to that impulse hit the person you are arguing with. Under the effects of the Red Eye virus, you're smacking that person.
What happens when you have a building filled with people in high stress jobs lose that filter? Where there is nothing holding them back from doing whatever pops into their heads.
A freaking good movie - that's what.
I heard a review of this movie on the Trick or Treat Radio podcast and it intrigued me.
Steven Yeun pulls off the everyman vibe perfectly. Someone who is trying to hold onto a piece of their goodness in his chosen profession.
Samara Weaving gives another amazing performance here. Between this and the Babysitter, she is an actress to look out for in the future.
