Possessor ★★½

"Pull me out."

Possessor marks its stand for having an ambitious premise that gets increasingly disgusting over its hyperviolent display of body horror. It's quite a trip. Unfortunately, the following tedious scenes make the film a tad bit pointless overall. The idea of alienation of one's own body doesn't click with me, but it's still a good thing for its own gain as it finds its footing in establishing an impressively off-putting atmosphere that's actually consistent, and an outrageous amount of practical body horror effects. It doesn't mean that it saved the whole film, though.
