Seeking a new laboratory to pursue his controversial genetic research, Dr Geoff Burton takes up a position at the world-renowned Institute for Molecular Cell Biology & Genetics in wintry Dresden, Germany. His contribution to their most top-secret project - a human regeneration gene - has the potential to make something miraculous out of a personal tragedy that has haunted him for years. But when he uncovers a conspiracy amongst his colleagues, he finds instead something quite different: a terrifying new virus, with potentially devastating consequences for humanity - and for Geoff, who is not only its first victim, but its unwitting source.

Jarek Novak: You know, mosquitoes, bed bugs, fleas, ticks - they all carry disease, yes? But instead of spreading sickness, why not change the formula. Make them carry genetically modified viruses? Anti-genes to our own plan. Imagine using this in the Third World; in Africa. They're going to be bitten anyway. Why not let them catch the "malaria vaccine", instead?
Geoffrey Burton: Hmm. But then you would first have to invent a "malaria vaccine", right?
Jarek Novak: You don't think it's possible?
Geoffrey Burton: I didn't say that.

Terrific, intelligent thriller, featuring top-notch performances by a classy and interesting cast.
13 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I honestly cannot understand why this movie is currently rating so low at IMDb. In my opinion it is one of the most intriguing and original thrillers I have seen in many years.

In some ways it is quite unique in that while at first it seems like a Cronenbergian body horror film, it turns out to be a "horror of the emotions" in which good intentions certainly do lead the well-meaning characters to their own especially cruel versions of hell.

Michael Eklund and Karoline Herfurth were absolutely terrific, diving into their roles with 100% commitment. And Rik Mayall was a revelation in the first serious role I've seen him play.

To me this is an amazing feature debut for writer/director Eron Sheean, most definitely a talent to be watched.

I hope people can overlook the low rating and give this film a chance because I feel it certainly deserves the attention of discerning cinephiles.
