Possessor Uncut

From the visionary mind of writer/director Brandon Cronenberg comes Possessor, the gripping new mindbender that stormed the 2020 Sundance Film Festival — presented in its full, uncut version!

An equally stylish and disturbing sci-fi thriller, the film follows elite corporate assassin Tasya Vos. Using brain-implant technology, Vos is able to take control of other people’s bodies so she can execute high profile targets. As she sinks deeper into her latest assignment, Vos becomes trapped inside a mind that threatens to obliterate her.

Starring Mandy’s Andrea Riseborough, Possessor is a disturbing tale that combines science fiction with psychological horror. This one packs quite the visceral sensory wallop – viewer discretion advised!


“It’s pure cinematic dysmorphia: to watch this movie carefully is to feel completely out of place, right alongside the people onscreen.” K. Austin Collins, Rolling Stone

“Believe the hype: Possessor is as good, if not better, than you’ve heard.”  — Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, ABC Radio (Australia)

“Cronenberg by name, Cronenberg by nature.” — Chris Hewitt, Empire Magazine (UK)
