The film will be getting a theatrical run followed by On Demand platforms in the fourth quarter of 2017 before it hits the horror streaming service Shudder in Q1 of 2018.
Lynch explains, “Mayhem is a very personal film for us that has affected and engaged festival audiences looking for some insane, cathartic fun in these trying times. With RLJ Entertainment and Shudder working together to bring Mayhem to the masses, I am confident that this crazy flick will find its audience in the best way possible. It will be for viewers who want the choice of a big, bold, loud theatrical experience; but it will also have the convenience and careful curation of Shudder’s fantastic service. As a fan and customer of Shudder, I am proud to know that we are in great company. Mayhem is coming for you all soon enough!”
