Jay Baruchel's 'Random Acts of Violence' Brings Slasherman to Shudder in August [Trailer]

Following its premiere at last year's Fantastic Fest, writer, director, producer and star Jay Baruchel's (This Is the End) stylish and brutal slasher Random Acts of Violence is headed to theaters and On Demand in Canada on July 31st. It'll then begin streaming exclusively on Shudder in the US, UK and Ireland on August 20th, 2020.

Adapted from the popular 2010 horror graphic novel by the same name, the film follows 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), who 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.

The press release describes, "Random Acts of Violence explores ideas of legitimizing cruelty, the responsibility of the artist, and what makes a monster in society. Masterfully lensed by award-winning cinematographer Karim Hussain (Hobo with a Shotgun, Brandon Cronenberg’s Possessor), the film holds a ferocious mirror up to art, society, and violence."

"Featuring a knock-out cast, iconic kills, and a pulsating score from celebrated punk all-star Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire, Black Lungs) and composer Andrew Gordon Macpherson (Vice’s Dark Side of The Ring) Random Acts of Violence makes for a truly subversive sophomore feature from Baruchel, and the slasher film of the Summer."
