    • Setting aside some minor similarities to last year's The Belko Experiment, Joe Lynch takes a crack at corporate America in Mayhem, a fairly standard genre piece that ultimately collapses beneath the weight...

    • Serving as a metaphor for the dangers of corporate ambitions, Mayhem is the story of a young, morally-bankrupt man, played The Walking Dead star Steven Yeun, with misguided aspirations of climbing the...
