Possessor ★★★★½

Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes again. More of this, please. Brandon Cronenberg's second film is gory and smart and disturbing, just like the movies Papa Cronenberg made in the days of yore. It is also polished in a way early David Cronenberg rarely was, and it crackles with a perverse vitality all it's own. And did I mention gory? Very, very gory practical effects periodically punctuate the thick fog of psychological dread. This is easily the best horror film I've seen this year. I can't wait to see what Brandon Cronenberg does next.

Viewed the Uncut version as part of the Telluride "Shelter in Place" Horrorshow.
