A hell of a day at the office.

All-out carnage and scathing corporate satire are the ingredients of a pulse-pounding horror-thriller. A virus causing victims to lose all inhibitions infects the headquarters of a ruthless law firm. With the building quarantined and bloodlust erupting around him, lawyer Derek must slaughter his way to the boardroom and save his career. Luckily, he has a highly able ally in Melanie, a client done wrong by the firm. Steven Yeun and Adelaide-born Samara Weaving are dynamite in this devilishly funny and cheerfully blood-soaked outing.

A smartly constructed and sardonically funny indie with attitude that somehow manages the tricky feat of being exuberantly over the top even as it remains consistently on target. – (Variety)
