If your dad is David Cronenberg, it’s not surprising if your directorial debut is going to be a little bit creepy and follow some of your father’s body horror interests. Brandon Cronenberg has made Antiviral, which debuted at Cannes and will play TIFF next month. The sci-fi film follows Syd March (Caleb Landry Jones), an employee of an unusual company that sells celebrity diseases to deranged fans. By becoming infected with the same viruses that have afflicted their favourite stars, these disturbed celebrity devotees hope to get a little closer to their famous idols. But when Syd is infected by a disease that took the life of a young starlet (Sarah Gadon), he suddenly finds that he has become a twisted collector’s item.
