Brandon Cronenberg, son of body horror legend David Cronenberg, exploded onto the scene in 2012 with his debut feature film, Antiviral. But regardless of being well received by critics and audiences alike, Brandon Cronenberg hasn’t released a feature since–until now.
Posessor made its world premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and received rave reviews from those in attendance. An early review from Film School Rejects had the following to say:
“Possessor retains his family’s love of body horror and morally misused electronics it also manages an engrossing pace, engaging characters, unrelentingly brutal violence, erect penises, a must-own Halloween mask, a mean-spirited Sean Bean, one hell of an ending, and more. A lot more because Possessor is… a lot, and most of it is wet, sticky, and dying before our eyes. All of it, though, is fantastically and cruelly unforgettable.”
You had me at unrelenting violence and erect penises–am I right? According to a recent press release, Possessor is “coming soon”, though no exact date has been specified. We’ll update you once we have more information to share. For now, check out the debut poster and red band teaser, below.
