RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE Is a Gore Lovers Dream

Random Acts of Violence, a new film from Jay Baruchel starring Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy, CABIN IN THE WOODS), Jordana Brewster (FAST AND THE FURIOUS series, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE BEGINNING), Niamh Wilson (SAW series) as well as Baruchel.

The first horror movie I watched as a kid was Nightmare on Elm Street. That scared the shit out of me. My love of horror films continued and I love zombie movies and classic 80’s slasher flicks the most.

Random Acts of Violence is definitely a cult classic in the making. The kills are extremely gruesome and well executed. Fans of a bit of gore and violent kills will love Random Acts.

Whenever I watch a horror film I am reminded that I have to always suspend disbelief and remind my self not to scream out things like “what the fuck are you doing” or “don’t go that way.” There are SO MANY moments that I couldn’t stop myself from yelling out. Sometimes that is distracting, but it is kinda a  horror trope.

Synopsis:

What are the real consequences when life begins to imitate art? Comic book creator Todd Walkley (Jesse Williams), his wife Kathy (Jordana Brewster), assistant Aurora (Niamh Wilson) and best friend, Hard Calibre Comics owner Ezra (Baruchel), embark upon a road trip from Toronto to New York Comic Con and bad things start to happen. People start getting killed.

It soon becomes clear that a crazed fan is using Todd’s “SLASHERMAN” comic as inspiration for the killings and as the bodies pile up, and Todd’s friends and family become victims themselves, Todd will be forced to take artistic responsibility.
