Everyone’s favourite Canadian horror filmmaker, David Cronenberg, has a son. He's called Brandon Cronenberg and he, too, is a filmmaker. Lucky for us, it turns out that Brandon's debut film Antiviral (also a horror) is out in select cities across the country now. Yes, now. So, to be in with a chance of winning two free tickets to see it at your local cinema (venues listed below), all you have to do is enter our competition.
Cronenberg Junior’s striking body-horror debut is a prescient and chilling vision of our cultural obsession with celebrity. In a dystopian future world, Syd March (Caleb Landry Jones) works at the Lucas Clinic, which has an unusual and highly profitable line of business: deliberately infecting paying customers with diseases harvested from top celebrities, thus providing a "biological communion" between stars and fans.
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.
