The actor stars in new action-horror film from director Joe Lynch

In the new action-horror movie Mayhem, Steven Yeun plays a character named Derek Cho, who after being unjustly fired from his job discovers that his law firm’s building is under quarantine for a mysterious and dangerous virus. Chaos erupts throughout the office as the victims of the 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 and settle the score once and for all.

Mayhem is directed by Joe Lynch (Everly, Wrong Turn 2, 12 Deadly Days) and written by Matias Caruso. The film costars Steven Brand.

RLJE Films will be releasing Mayhem in theaters and on VOD and digital HD on Nov. 10. Ahead of that, the movie will receive its West Coast premiere at 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood as part of Beyond Fest. Tickets for that screening can be purchased via Fandango.
