Viral (2016) Film Review. Blumhouse Productions, Busted Shark Productions, IM Global. Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. Distributed by Dimension Films, and The Weinstein Company. Not Rated running time 86 minutes.
A film for once based on scientific facts, although once more exaggerated, is based on the idea of a parasitic creature taking over a human body, with one purpose to pass that parasite on to other hosts, via spitting blood into people's faces.
With parasitic entities that already control the actions of rats, that actually make them fearless around cat's, which they eat, then live in the intestinal wall of cats, to be excreated and for the cycle to be passed on again. Using this idea, but having humans as hosts, and loosely using the idea of a parasitic worm similar to South American Botworm is the basis of this great story, giving an insight to how a possible pandemic is controlled, via the CDC and how the Goverment would control the situation, is quite scarily realistic.
