All in all, Mayhem was literally all over the place, and rightly so. It was an action thriller /horror comedy that used all the elements of the genre to perfection (loved the scoring as well) — an entertaining script by Matias Caruso, rootable characters, great cinematography (the framing for the shots was always on point) and everything worked perfectly well together to deliver a gore filled bloodfest that made no apologies for its campiness or its brutality. Which is just perfect in my book.
All in all, props to “Supernatural” and “Charlie’s Angels” director McG for coming through with a wild, fast-paced, gory horror comedy that’s perfect for the Halloween binge watch (and even beyond). “The Babysitter” was a worthy watch for horror and non-horror fans and I, for one, think that it has quickly become one of my favorites for the genre.
