IFC Films Finally Set To Release Creepy ‘Antiviral,’ Comedic ‘Sightseers’

We’re told IFC Films is taking a step back from acquiring genre films, but until then, they have quite a few to unload.

First, Brandon Cronenberg’s social commentary horror Antiviral, pictured above, gets released on April 12. Starring Caleb Landy Jones, Malcolm McDowell and Sarah Gadon, the son of David Cronenberg’s film “Revolves around a salesman (Jones) for a clinic that replicates celebrity diseases for public consumption. He becomes obsessed with a celebrity and injects himself with her disease, then must figure out how to cure it before time runs out.” I was a pretty big fan of the flick, read my review here.

Getting released on May 10 is Kill List director Ben Wheatley’s serial killer comedy Sightseers, pictured below, which I thought was pretty OK. The film is “The story is about a couple on a countryside caravan trip that goes wrong.

Both films played strong through the festival scene and are worthy of a VOD rental.

    it’s Caleb Landry Jones – not Landy.
    please, rectify

    Really looking forward to SIGHTSEERS, though I didn’t care for KILL LIST. I own it so I may give it another look.

    Antiviral was an interesting feature debut from the spawn of Cronenberg.

    Finally an update on Antiviral! I was just looking around on Google the other day for a release date of some kind.

    Seriously, I’m sure it’s not so hard to fix the name of the actor…
