Antiviral (2013)


Summary: Syd March (Caleb Landry Jones) works for The Lucas Clinic — a company that reaps a tidy profit by infecting willing clients with viruses taken from their favorite celebrities. Earning a little extra cash on the side by using his own body to smuggle out popular microbes, Syd finds himself in mortal danger after he infects himself with a pathogen taken from Hannah Geist — a gorgeous superstar who later dies as a result of her illness. Now, it’s only a matter of time before Syd succumbs to a similarly gruesome fate. When Syd’s shady clients and a rival company discover he’s carrying a bug that could revolutionize the industry, he becomes the target of them as well as rogue biological collectors.
