After becoming infected by the virus he'd unwittingly smuggled from the corpse of a dead celeb (Gadon), Syd March (Jones) has to unravel her death to save his own life.
A smart, subversive but rather cold debut from Brandon Cronenberg that's short of the dark wit that lit up his father's early work. Then again, comparisons are hardly fair, especially when Cronenberg Jr. clearly has plenty of ideas of his own.
