Viruses that cannot reproduce aren't viruses at all... They are used to actually immunize people to the disease without any chance of a real infection. At this story the "science" behind this SciFi doesn't make sense. The celebrity cult withViruses that cannot reproduce aren't viruses at all... They are used to actually immunize people to the disease without any chance of a real infection. At this story the "science" behind this SciFi doesn't make sense. The celebrity cult with cannibalism doesn't make much sense. And besides this we see a pretty mediocre story... Expand

Antiviral is not easy to characterize or rate. After the first half hour, I thought I would be rating it up. It begins more sci-fi than horror with look into a concept world (a kind of dystopia that people living in consider normal). FromAntiviral is not easy to characterize or rate. After the first half hour, I thought I would be rating it up. It begins more sci-fi than horror with look into a concept world (a kind of dystopia that people living in consider normal). From there it becomes less about the ideas and more a typical corporate thriller. The plot falls off and does not hold attention. Still, it is an interesting film that can be recommended to both fans of sci-fi and art house, though be warned that it has a fair amount of non-violent / psychological horror. Expand

Instead, this disjointed, painfully slow, essentially one character diatribe is presented in its place. and passed off as something deep and profound. Honestly, I've seen movies made by High School students that were better than this. It's mind boggling to imagine all the time and money wasted on this effort. Expand

It stays far away from mainstream tradition of horror and instead goes for the kind of body horror that was obviously inspired by Brandon Cronenberg's father, David Cronenberg. The film gets a bit dull in the middle, but I was never actually bored. I should also note a very strong performance by Caleb Landry Jones. Collapse
