Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn made his directorial film debut in 2014, with Mall. Adapted from Eric Bogosian’s 2001 novel of the same name, the film stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Gina Gershon and Cameron Monaghan. The movie as seen through the eyes of Jeff (Cameron Monaghan), examines a group of disaffected suburbanites who find themselves at a shopping mall in the wake of a seemingly random shooting, and whose outlooks on their own lives are positively transformed as a result.
Following the film’s theatrical release last October, Mall is now available on Netflix. Check out the trailer for the film below, along with what people are saying about the project!
You can watch Mall as a basic low-budget horror-thriller about people making their way through a mass shooting event, and you’ll be satisfied enough. But the real pleasures come from considering the deeper layers, and from the old school nods to the grind house sensibilities and psychedelic theater. – Forbes
Joseph Hahn proves that when he’s got a couple of weeks and a talented cast that anything’s possible in “Mall.” The member of the Grammy-winning rock band Linkin Park takes a sociopath, automatic weapons, and a group of people in the wrong place at the wrong time and manages to craft it into one of the the most thought-provoking coming-of-age films of the year. – AXS.com
