Antiviral Reviews

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.

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

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

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

The movie can be repulsive at times, but Cronenberg is more interested in ideas than in blood and guts.

Papa Cronenberg must be proud, but be advised: If there's a blood test in your future, book it before seeing this movie.

It's exactly the oddball and crooked tale you'd want and expect from a Cronenberg with all the gratuitous blood, pus, bone and multiple closeups of needles piercing skin you could ask for. Dad would be proud.

Cronenberg fils, though, while sharing dad's bodily fixations, exhibits other influences from his Kubriakian art direction (white minimalism) to Lynchian imagery (red drapes and blurred head shots)...star Landry Jones compels in a breakout role.

Cronenberg achieves a kind of heightened reality that does not resemble the real world but possesses its own internal logic.

Cronenberg's directing style is elegant, all shiny surfaces and sleek camera moves, until the horror begins; then the film turns as dark and as bloody as the physical decay of its star-obsessed characters.
