Screener Squad: Possessor

Possessor Movie Review


Director Brandon Cronenberg follows in his father’s footsteps in this bizarre and disturbing techno-horror-thriller. Andrea Riseborough plays a woman who works secretly for a secretive tech company that is able to project her into the bodies of unwilling ‘candidates’ to carry out assassinations. Her latest victim (Christopher Abbott) seems to be par for the course at first, but things begin to go wrong and soon both violence and identity crises loom large. Chris, Harmoni, Davey, and Robert take on this one and give you the goods.
