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! 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!
