Possessor

Possessor ★★★½

Today, it may feel like we are possessed by technology at times. Here, it takes that theme and deep dives into the disturbing abyss. Extremely brutal, this Canadian cautionary sci-fi thriller works its way under your skin in several ways. The striking visuals and hallucinatory soundscape create a molasses-thick atmosphere. Like 'Antiviral' before, Cronenberg Jr is making a name for himself by pushing the boundaries of what shocks us. The coda to decipher lies in the butterfly and our host's shifting perspective on it.
