Here's your first look at Antiviral, the directorial debut of David Cronenberg's son Brandon — with a totally mind-blowing and revolting premise. Twitch Film has this first image from the film, plus the first synopsis:

Antiviral follows Syd March, an employee at a clinic that sells injections of live viruses harvested from sick celebrities to obsessed fans. Biological communion - for a price. Syd also supplies illegal samples of these viruses to piracy groups, smuggling them from the clinic in his own body. When he becomes infected with the disease that kills super sensation Hannah Geist, Syd becomes a target for collectors and rabid fans. He must unravel the mystery surrounding her death before he suffers the same fate.

It stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class), with Sarah Gadon (Cosmopolis) and Malcolm McDowell.
