SND Films' Random Acts of Violence is set to debut later this month as part of Austin's Fantastic Fest, which runs September 19 through 26. Based on the Image Comics title by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, and Giancarlo Caracuzzo, Random Acts of Violence is led by actor/director Jay Baruchel.
"Todd Walkley (Jesse Williams) and his publisher Ezra (Jay Baruchel) made their careers crafting a comic book based on a real-life serial killer called Slasherman," reads SND's description of the film. "On a press tour to announce the launch of their final issue, they visit the town where Slasherman wreaked havoc twenty years earlier. Upon their arrival, a series of new murders unfold… murders that look eerily familiar to imagery in Todd’s Slasherman comics. Speculation and paranoia build regarding the identity of the mysterious killer."
The studio has not set a theatrical release date for the film.
