‘Random Acts of Violence’ is based on the comic of the same name by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti. The screen adaptation stars?Jesse Williams (‘Grey’s Anatomy’), Jordana Brewster (‘Fast & Furious‘ franchise), Niamh Wilson (‘Saw; franchise) and Jay Baruchel (‘How to Train Your Dragon’ franchise), who also directed and co-wrote the film with Jesse Chabot (‘Goon: Last of the Enforcers’).
‘Random Acts of Violence’ follows Toronto-based comic book creator Todd Walkley (Williams), his wife, Kathy (Brewster); assistant, Aurora (Wilson); and best friend, Ezra (Baruchel), as they drive to Manhattan for New York Comic Con to promote his popular series, ‘Slasherman.’ Along the way, bad things start to happen, and people start getting killed. It soon becomes clear that a crazed fan is using Todd’s hit comic book series as inspiration for the murders. As the bodies pile up, and Todd’s friends become victims themselves, he’s forced to face the killer and put an end to his notorious comic once and for all.
