Antiviral Reviews

Page 1 of 5
Richard Haridy
Quickflix

With an obsession for close-ups of needles piercing skin, Antiviral leaves one with a OCD-style desire to wash ones hands... the overreaching success of the film lies in its believable depiction of a culture slowly rotting at the core.

The script is thin but effectively creepy as it examines contemporary pop culture obsessions while maximizing the queasy close-ups of needles, blood and medical procedures.

How sick can fans of a celebrity get? Very, answers "Antiviral." Imagine fan fetish culture metastasizing. A pox on consumers and capitalists alike, Brandon Cronenberg sneers.

Our Lindsay Lohan-obsessed culture gets its comeuppance in this surgically precise satire.

As pretentious as it is boring.

Brandon (son of David) Cronenberg demonstrates that the diseased tumor doesn't fall far from the infected corpse, so to speak: He's delivered a movie of smart, satirical science-fiction concepts and disturbing, sometimes bloody images.

A gutsy, notable debut for a young filmmaker who needs to find a unique voice to match his unique ideas.

The metaphors are maybe too clear (there's a food product grown from celebrity muscle cells), but the filmmaking is solid, using a nearly monochrome palette for its sleek dystopia.

Originality is a rare commodity in art, so when something fresh and unexpected comes my way, it's cause for celebration. Brandon Cronenberg's Antiviral is cause for celebration.

Cronenberg Jnr has created a reality that makes the skin crawl. Satire, horror and sci-fi meld into one delectably gruesome tale in which Caleb Landry Jones' pasty protagonist spends most of the film clutching a thermometer, syringe and a vial of blood

If Cronenberg's not yet a dead ringer for his iconic dad, he's taken an intriguing first step.

While Brandon Cronenberg surely lives up to the family name, I can't prescribe Antiviral to anyone needing an exciting sci-fi fix.

The pace is uneven, the energy sluggish (even the arrival of Malcolm McDowell in the third act doesn't pep things up) and the film feels overlong.

Undoubtedly a challenging watch, but it's helped greatly by beautiful cinematography and music.

If weirdness was all that mattered, Antiviral would be a must-see.

As a piss-take of society's shallow fascination with Kardashian-like nobodies, Antiviral is coolly effective, but there's little insight into the psychology that drives normal people to fixate on such 'celebrities'.

Sick, stomach-churning, satirical sci-fi - and the many distastefully visceral syringe scenes are not for the squeamish.

A slick, vapid thriller. Cronenberg has style and flair, but his all-too-obvious ideas about fame leave us with caricatures, not characters.

"Antiviral" is interesting for the first ten or fifteen minutes before it digresses into a slough. Boredom is the death of any movie, and this one will bore you to tears.
