Creepy and Disturbing Trailer, Clip, and Poster for Brandon Cronenberg’s ANTIVIRAL

An unnerving trailer for Brandon Cronenberg‘s Antiviral has gone online.  The film stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class) as a worker at a specialized clinic where patients pay to be infected with diseases harvested from celebrities as a way to feel closer to their idols.  Judging by the trailer, Brandon Cronenberg (son of David Cronenberg) seems to share his father’s understanding that being gory isn’t enough if you want to creep people out.  You have to find the right way to destroy the human body if you want to disturb the audience.  Antiviral looks like it’s going to disturb the hell out of its audience.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with the poster, a clip, and a viral promo (no pun intended).  Antiviral will play at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, and I plan to check it out provided I haven’t eaten beforehand.
