Anthrax tells the story of a group of best friends, reserve soldiers who volunteered to take part in an anthrax vaccine experiment during their military service.  Seven years later, they discover that the vaccine has disastrous side effects, and the men set out to expose the truth and save their own lives.  Anthrax keeps you glued to your seat as it confronts a real scandal by combining its truths with fictional narratives, and using a documentary style that blurs the line separating reality and fiction.  If you were a Blair Witch Project fan, this one is for you.
