Possessor

Possessor ★★★★

none of this shit is real, just an illusion. at times, deeply psychologically tense and disturbing, in a way that doesn’t usually happen to me with body horror. sometimes it’s just a lot of fun. sometimes it’s a little confused and unsure of what direction it’s going to spiral towards next. but for the entire runtime, I was compelled to see what fucking horrific shit Brandon was going to inflict on the human body this scene. focusing on the terrors of the mind, how little control we truly have over our consciousness and the powerlessness that comes from not being able to trust your own thoughts was definitely the strongest direction the younger Cronenberg could have went in. also there’s a bit with some teeth that genuinely popped me with a guttural “oh no” so well done king.
