With father David concerning himself less with the sub-genre that put him on the map, namely ‘body horror’, it’s up to his son Brandon Cronenberg to take over the mantle. And a top job he looks to have done too, judging by this first trailer for his feature debut, ANTIVIRAL. In this disturbing tale, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS star Caleb Landry Jones works for a specialist clinic who provide celebrity diseases – so, you know, you can feel closer to your favourite star. Want Lindsey Lohan’s herpes? Not a problem! Jay-Z’s anal warts? Sign here! [Note to lawers: Starburst is not suggesting either of these people suffer from the afflictions named, they were just the first names the writer thought of.] When our protagonist acquires the disease of megastar Hannah Geist (Sarah Gordon) while smuggled the viruses in his body to sell on the snide, he races against time for a cure when it turns out to be much more than a case of the sniffles and kills her.

What follows is the frankly fantastic first trailer, followed by a clip, and finally, an ANTIRAL viral vid in the form of a Lucas Clinic ad. Enjoy!
