We all love a good epidemic movie here at Movie Ramblings, especially if it leads to plenty of blood splashing across the screen.

Which is why we have our eyes firmly on Antisocial, a film that centres on a New Year’s party with a real difference.

While the partying goes on, a virus sweeps the world, leaving five university friends to barricade themselves indoors when they get wind of the situation.

But as fear and paranoia take hold, the five realise they may not be as safe as they first thought.

Cody Calahan takes director duties here, delivering his first feature after a handful of short film projects.

The cast includes the likes of Adam Christie and Ana Alic, while the trailer offers up a neat brew of bloody effects and technology gone bad, so fingers crossed for good things when Antisocial screens at Frightfest on Saturday, August 24.

And if word of mouth from a few other festivals already this year is to be believed, this could easily be one of the sleeper hits of the shindig.
