Storyline

RANDOM ACTS OF VIOLENCE is an ultra low budget thriller/black comedy about Malcolm - a New Yorker who gets tired of how gentrified, tepid and antiseptic it's all become. So he decides to take matters into his own hands by personally starting a crime wave which he hopes will catch on and drive real estate value down, opening up the city to bohemians, artists and a swell of creativity, just like the supposed good 'ole days of the 1970s and 80s. The only problem is: Nobody is paying attention. Written by Anonymous

Hilarious B-list Movie
8 July 2014 | by DiCaprio74See all my reviews

This movie was taken to a whole new level. Ashley Cahill might have been the writer/director but he was an amazing lead. I normally wouldn't want to watch these type of serial killer tries to get all of his crimes on tape type of movies, but this one was exceptional! 

The supporting actors were great, they were funny, surprisingly could act, and at some times had their own type of crimes that they had to commit. 

This movie had a copacetic story structure and kept me interested throughout the entire film. It's not a horror film so there's nothing to be afraid of, it's just a funny, psycho wants peace thriller. Well done Cahill. 

I strongly recommend watching on Netflix if bored or just want a little laugh.
