Infected is a 2008 Canadian made-for-television Action and Adventure Science-Fiction horror-thriller film, which was directed by Adam Weissman.[1] The movie has been given extremely negative reviews by critics and criticized by local television viewers for its B-movie/Z-movie-style elements and low-grade cinematography, extremely cheap budget, lack of coherence, fast-paced and improper storytelling. The film however, has developed a strong cult following among Google Users, who have seen the film. The film received an R-rating from the MPAA before its scheduled release in the United States in 2009.



The project was filmed in Montreal, Quebec, Canada under the working title The Hatching.[2] The title was later changed to Infected, however this caused problems. A novel by writer Scott Sigler, with the same name Infected, had to have its book title changed to Infested, in order to prevent confusion, and a false copyright infringement/plagiarism penalty.


It aired on 27 April 2008 on the SciFi channel.[3] Genius Productions and Rhi Entertainment released the film Direct-to-DVD and VOD on 19 May 2009 in the United States.[4] The film currently holds a 3.9 out of 10 on IMDB.[5] The film later received a limited online streaming release on Netflix, in 2011 and was given moderately positive reviews.


Ned Bouhalassa composed the score and worked on the Soundtrack with drummer Christian Olsen.[6]
