Inkubus director Glenn Ciano has yet another film at Cannes, Infected, which stars Michael Madsen, William Forsythe, Christy Carlson Romano, Tommy DeNucci, Johnny Cicco, Annie Worden, and Jeanine Kane.

As they’ve been doing for years, Louis and his son, Andrew, are first to arrive at the peaceful cottage their hunting club rents each deer season, and as the other club members arrive, they begin the familiar, relaxing task of setting up the cabin.
