Some people see a new indie horror flick with a slightly familiar premise and they shriek "rip-off." It's easy to guess that the new indie thriller called Antisocial will be accused of "stealing" from Stephen King's Cell, fine indie flicks like 28 Days Later, Pontypool, and The Signal, and/or countless J-horror flicks in which humanity's over-reliance on technology leads to some truly horrific results. So, no, the Canadian horror offering called Antisocial is not the most original concept you'll come across. It still manages to get some stuff right.
It's no big secret that horror stories can -- and often do -- work well in small doses.
