Manny Liotta’s review published on Letterboxd:
Channeling echoes from his own father, Brandon Cronenberg has made a cerebral cinematic lucid dream that carries heavy weight from the horror & cyberpunk scifi world, creating a headtrip film that spirals down the funnel tunnel so fast, polarizing your senses for the short runtime. This thing had me gasping within minutes. It’s some hardcore, psychedelic shit. The effects are show stoppers just in themselves but the context of the violence... It ain’t for the faint of heart, that’s for sure. I wish more movies would take these chances, it’s so rare now a days. With them being so few & far in between, POSSESSOR feels like an acid dipped nightmare that doesn’t end. It’s my first ( & maybe only? ) 2020 film I’ve seen and it was a powerhouse that knocked me flat on my ass, gasping for air.
