This Is the End actor Jay Baruchel produced, directed, and starred in Random Acts of Violence, which will release this summer after having its World Premiere at last year’s Fantastic Fest where Trace Thurman called it “a brutal and merciless slasher.”
In the film, “Comic book creator Todd Walkley (Jesse Williams), his wife Kathy (Jordana Brewster), assistant Aurora (Niamh Wilson) and best friend, Hard Calibre Comics owner Ezra (Jay Baruchel), 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 arrives in theaters and on-demand in Canada on July 31, and it’ll then premiere on Shudder in the US, UK and Ireland on August 20th, 2020.
