All over the world, many people suffer from extreme obsessive compulsive disorders which constrict them from taking part in normal day-to-day activities. But what happens when one of them decides to step out of their comfort zone just a little bit and try to be normal?
This is the basic idea behind Body/Antibody, an independent film from Kerry Douglas Dye and Jordan Hoffman. The movie was released back in 2007, but remains relatively unknown and unseen, and this is a shame.
Body/Antibody tells the story of Kip (Robert Gomes), and man being held prisoner in his own apartment by his obsessive compulsive disorder. Kip isn’t a big fan of any type of germs, and he goes to extreme lengths to keep them out. He works out of his home from his computer; he pays people to deliver food he needs or take out his trash; he does his laundry in the bath tub; he washes, scrubs, and sanitizes any and everything as often as he sees necessary, including constantly washing his hands and taking many showers a day.

A few weeks ago, an absolutely insane movie trailer was unleashed upon the world. A trailer that, among other things, featured a GIANT shark eating a passenger plane and a GIANT octopus doing some other crazy shit that no one could even comprehend. The film in question? The Asylum’s Mega Shark VS. Giant Octopus.
With over two million views on YouTube and MTV’s website combined, MSVGO is the Asylum’s most anticipated release to date. Coming from a company that has released such knock-offs as Transmorphers and The Da Vinci Treasure, this mockbuster-making group of “filmmakers” has clearly begun to take pride in their reputation as the go-to guys when you want a movie that is “so bad it’s good.”
But is the film worth all of the hype? Is the relatively small internet buzz behind this like a mini Snakes on a Plane? Yes and no. Let me break it down…
