Antiviral – What to Watch This Weekend

Antiviral is going to be one of those cult films that was never given much marketing clout. The debut feature film from Brandon Cronenberg (David Cronenberg’s son)  has proved that the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree. Antiviral is a well executed reflection on society’s obsession with celebrity wrapped up as a body horror. Antiviral is a combination of science fiction and horror. Not for the squeamish.

Synopsis:

Though his work environment is tightly monitored, Syd manages to sneak viruses out of the office and retool them on his personal console for his lucrative sideline supplying the black-market disease trade. When Syd is tasked by his employer to collect a virus from starlet Hannah Geist (Sarah Gadon), he is unable to resist the temptation to get closer to one of his own personal celebrity obsessions. Injecting the virus into his own bloodstream, Syd is launched down a dangerous path — and the stakes are raised even higher when he learns that Hannah’s illness is potentially fatal.

Released in the UK on Friday 1st of February 2013, Antiviral is Directed by Brandon Cronenberg and stars Caleb Landry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Malcolm McDowell
