A dangerous virus, one that prevents the infected from controlling their inhibitions, is discovered in a corporate law building, the very same firm that recently cleared an infected man on murder charges. When a quarantine is issued and the building goes on lockdown, all hell breaks loose inside, while a disgruntled employee (Steven Yeun) and an irate client (Samara Weaving) must fight and even kill their way to the top to “have a word” with the corrupt executives who wronged them before time runs out.
Joe Lynch is a director, or at least he keeps telling people that. Born in Long Island and dealing with life in L.A., Lynch’s previous films include such seminal cinematic classics as "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End," "Knights of Badassdom," and "Everly" with Salma Hayek. This is Lynch’s 3rd film premiere in Austin and first at SXSW.
