After 8 long years, it’s finally here. Brandon Cronenberg’s next feature film. Antiviral was a pleasant surprise and really showcased [Brandon] Cronenberg’s true weirdness and unabridged creativity. Well, when you’re a literal spawn of David Cronenberg there isn’t really a doubt that you would be destined for success.
After news dropped of Possessor’s incredibly successful premiere at Sundance, anticipations grew with any word of distribution. Thankfully the amazing humans at NEON are bringing this sure to be modern cult classic to our homes (at some point). Until then we can just keep rewatching this trailer over and over soaking up every beautiful second of it:
Possessor follows an agent who works for a secretive organization that uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people’s bodies – ultimately driving them to commit assassinations for high-paying clients.(IMDb)
This trailer just looks trippy as hell, like a weird DMT trip through the psychosis of recluse scientist. If that makes sense. The film also has quite a stacked cast with Andrea Riseborough (Mandy, Waco, and Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight, eXistenZ), Sean Bean (that guy that dies in every movie), Tuppence Middleton (Sense8, Disappearance at Clifton Hill), and Christopher Abbott (The Sinner, Martha Marcy May Marlene).
Possessor is going to be badass, and there is really no doubt about it. We will keep you updated WHEN there is a date for VOD/physical release! Keep your eyes peeled!
I write horror sometimes.
