Possessor ★★★★

Efficiently delivering some good old-fashioned body horror & sleek thrills just like his renowned father did back then, Brandon Cronenberg's Possessor is a stunningly grisly & brutally effective sci-fi horror-thriller that sensibly uses its intriguing 'taking control of other people’s bodies' premise to a significant degree throughout without going toward an overly exaggerated route.

While it isn't quite fully explored all the way through, Possessor nonetheless offers up plenty of top-notch performances from the cast (particularly Andrea Riseborough & Christopher Abbott), and the exceptionally remarkable blood-soaked practical effects work from start to finish was for sure absolutely striking, as each of these specific aspects easily supported the exhilarating narrative to move along at a steady pace.

Definitely impressive all around, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing what Brandon Cronenberg does next especially if it's anything like this one.
