Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Eventually the clammy spell of this handsomely designed but solemnly paced movie begins to wear off, and you long for a little action or at least some fresh air. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Apr 11, 2013

Fresh: Cronenberg achieves a kind of heightened reality that does not resemble the real world but possesses its own internal logic. – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Apr 9, 2013

Fresh: Papa Cronenberg must be proud, but be advised: If there's a blood test in your future, book it before seeing this movie. – Chuck Wilson, Village Voice, Apr 10, 2013

Fresh: Cronenberg's directing style is elegant, all shiny surfaces and sleek camera moves, until the horror begins; then the film turns as dark and as bloody as the physical decay of its star-obsessed characters. – Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Apr 8, 2013

Customer Reviews

Aw -- disappointed

Thrillingly morbid and creepy at the beginning, but by the end it's just grim, nasty and tedious -- kind of like walking uphill in a sharp wind with a headache.

Matthew Barney Anyone

It's a safe bet that someone who worked on Antiviral is a BIG fan of the artist Matthew Barney because much of the production design looks like it was lifted from his work. That said I think it is quite a good first outing for Cronenberg the younger. It has a wonderfully creepy tone and strong performances throughout.

Mesmerizing

A chilling, darkly funny fable that deconstructs celebrity culture and the cynical corporate interests that drive it through the metaphor of designer pathogens. Brilliantly shot and convincingly acted. Watch for the extended cameo from cinema's all-time greatest space monkey.
