First trailer and poster for Brandon Cronenberg's Antiviral

Brandon Cronenberg's forthcoming body horror has its first poster and trailer, which you can see here...

Apples seldom fall far from trees, we think the saying goes. And in his debut feature, Brandon Cronenberg (son of David) shows all the flair for directing body horror that his father has over his illustrious career. 

A combination of science fiction and horror, just like David Cronenberg's own debut, Shivers, Antiviral appears to satirise our society's fascination with celebrity. Its characters attempt to get a little closer to their idols by being injected with viruses taken directly from their bloodstreams - a gruesome idea on its own, but rendered even more unsettling by the use of lighting and camerawork displayed in the trailer below. 

Beneath that, there's a poster, which is both minimal and creepy.

Antiviral's due out in the US and Canada on the 12th October, with a UK release yet to be announced as far as we can tell. If one appears, we'll let you know.
