Shudder has released a red band trailer, poster and images for writer-director Jay Baruchel’s upcoming horror Random Acts of Violence. The film follows a pair of writers who notice that horrific real-life murders have scary similarities with a comic book they created, ‘Slasherman’; check them out here…
What are the real consequences when life begins to imitate art? 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), 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.
Random Acts of Violence features a cast that includes Baruchel, Jesse Williams, Jordana Brewster, and Niamh Wilson.
It arrives on Shudder on August 20th.
