IFC dates Ben Wheatley's Sightseers and Brandon Cronenberg's Antiviral

Feb. 14, 2013by: Eric Walkuski

Two genre offerings that have been offered abroad but not in the states, Ben Wheatley's killer comedy SIGHTSEERS and Brandon Cronenberg's freaky ANTIVIRAL, have finally been given release dates by domestic distributor IFC. Fangoria received word that both films will be coming our way this spring via VOD and limited theatrical release.

ANTIVIRAL, which stars Caleb Landy Jones, Malcolm McDowell and Sarah Gadon, infects on APRIL 12th, while SIGHTSEERS, featuring Steve Oram and Alice Lowe, arrives on MAY 10th. Both flicks have received tremendous notices elsewhere, so us Yanks are eager to get our hands on them at long last.

ANTIVIRAL has the following synopsis:

Syd March is an employee at a clinic that sells injections of live viruses harvested from sick celebrities to obsessed fans. 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.

Meanwhile, SIGHTSEERS goes like this:

Chris (Steve Oram) wants to show Tina (Alice Lowe) his world and he wants to do it his way on a journey through this sceptred isle in his beloved Abbey Oxford Caravan. Tinas led a sheltered life and there are things that Chris needs her to see the Crich Tramway Museum, the Ribblehead Viaduct, the Keswick Pencil Museum and the rolling countryside that separates these wonders in his life. But it doesnt take long for the dream to fade. Litterbugs, noisy teenagers and pre-booked caravan sites, not to mention Tinas meddling mother, soon conspire to shatter Chriss dreams and send him, and anyone who rubs him up the wrong way, over a very jagged edge
