It seems we have a weekend of disaster on our hands. Besides the apocalypse - set during a couples' brunch, of all places - this batch of films details the dystopic effects of modern technology, a futuristic world where diseases are commodified, a battle for survival at the ends of the earth (aka, the Norwegian tundra), and a study of man's inability to relate. And, of course, the cataclysmic "Scary Movie" franchise makes its reappearance. The lone light at the end of the tunnel is a heartwarming come-together-sports movie, a good pick-me-up and strong antidote to the hopelessness of life everywhere else. We're pretty pumped. And you, faithful cinephiles: which Armageddon flick gets your blood pumping?

So whether it just runs in the family, or if it was a calculated decision to do something audiences would expect from the Cronenberg mantle, full credit to Brandon for taking body horror to the next level with "Antiviral." While hardly perfect, it delivers the freak fest that fans of David have been missing for the past few years while establishing Brandon as a filmmaker with a bright future.
