It's New Year's Eve, and Sam (Michelle Mylett) is crushed because her boyfriend (Charlie Hamilton) has just dumped her, and not even face to face but via socialredroom.com, the social media of the afternoon. This hits Sam so hard she deletes her socialredroom-profile. Later, at a small scale New Year's party, she already starts to regret deleting her profile, as everyone else seems to be on the site all the time, via laptop, smartphone and whatnot.

... and then all hell breaks loose, as a sort of killing spree-virus seems to have affected the whole world, and suddenly Sam and her friends (Cody Ray Thompson, Adam Christie, Ana Alic, Romaine Waite) see themselves surrounded by infected and have to board the whole house up. That's only the beginning though, as soon, Sam's friends find themselves infected one after the other, and when trying to figure out what's going on, Sam finds out that it all has to do with a virus, carried via socialredroom.com that has some very unexpected and violent side effects - basically hallucinations and homicidal tendencies. And one after the other, Sam's friends go insane and can only be stopped by killing them.

It's only when they are reduced to Sam and best friend Mark (Cody Ray Thompson) that they learn about a cure. Now there are a few problems: Mark is starting to show the symptoms, and Sam is no longer sure she's not infected ... and the cure involves running a household powerdrill into your skull. Plus, if the cure's just that, a cure ... who's to say the world is still a worthy place to live in? ...

 

On a pure narrative level, Antisocial might seem like little more than a blend of slasher and zombie motives (which might already sound interesting enough mind you), but what really makes the film is the biting satire of "social" life of the 21st century, driven to the extreme (and without ever becoming pedestrian), coupled with a plot that avoids becoming sensationalist and still features plenty of unexpected plottwists and surprises, an interesting cast of characters embodied by a competent cast, and a directorial effort that favours subtlety over spectacle.

Recommended, actually.
