Possessor ★★★★

“Don’t forget to pull the trigger!”

Coming from Cronenberg’s son, I’m not too surprised to get a surrealistic gem, but I’m glad to see that it panned out well. It’s (of course) extremely eerie and disturbing, with some awesome ideas, particularly the idea of living out your murderous fantasies in someone else’s body.

I had some unanswered questions near the end (that kinda got more confusing the more we talked about them afterwards) and I think it is a little rough around the edges in areas, but this is overall an excellent flick, and what’s here to understand is done great. I just hope Brandon can individualize himself a little more from his father so I stop feeling the need to call him “Cronenberg’s son”.  Strong 7 to a light 8 on this one!
