Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Brandon Cronenberg’s Possessor in its uncut form is a gruesome journey with mashed heads, full frontal nudity and shocking moments. What a joy that is to write! In a year where cinema seems tamer than ever leave it to a Cronenberg to come and upset the apple cart. Possessor isn’t perfect, it’s narratives a bit too jumbled and at times the film does step firmly into pretentiousness, but I love the fact that this is a balls out old school sci-fi horror film of the kind that just isn’t made any more. Cronenberg once again proves himself to be a unique cinematic vision, much like his dad did some 40 years ago. Cant wait to see what he does next.
Best Bit: Gore. Lots of gore.
