Shudder UK has confirmed some very exciting news for horror fans. The streaming platform will be bringing Jay Baruchel’s Random Acts of Violence to screens in the UK and US in August.
Take a look at the movie’s trailer in the player below:
What are the real consequences when life begins to imitate art? Comic book creator Todd Walkley, his wife Kathy, assistant Aurora and best friend, Hard Calibre Comics owner Ezra, embark upon a road trip from Toronto to NYC 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.
Random Acts of Violence is an elevated slasher horror that will easily become a cult favourite; scratching the entertainment element of horror whilst searching for the deeper meaning behind the violence. The film explores the idea of legitimising cruelty, and the fact that monsters are not merely monsters, they are broken people. Stretching from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other, it holds a mirror up to art, society and violence.
Random Acts of Violence will be available in theatres as well as to rent or own across all digital and on-demand platforms in Canada on July 31st 2020 and on 20th August 2020 in the UK/US via Shudder.
