Possessor ★★★★

An engaging and stylish psychological horror with hints of body horror. I expected a tad more of the latter, but what we do get is phenomenal. There’s some truly haunting and mesmerizing imagery. You can see strong homages to his father’s work, but he manages to make it his own. I don’t think the thematic elements are quite as strong as his handle on visuals and atmosphere. Fortunately, everything else is strong enough, including two great central performances. I’ll take shades of David Cronenberg any day of the week.

Now I want to watch Videodrome.
