The name Cronenberg might be familiar, but the Cronenberg behind 'Antiviral' is not David Cronenberg. Instead it comes from Brandon Cronenberg (David's son), and the apple has not fallen too far from the tree. This body horror film looks like the sort that David would have directed in between 'Scanners' and 'Videodrome.' And that's a compliment.
Like father, like son. At least that's the word out of this year's Cannes film festival, where Brandon Cronenberg (son of David Cronenberg) premiered his new film 'Antiviral.' You can see the film sooner rather than later as IFC Midnight has just acquired the distribution rights.
