Possessor ★★★

I knew there had to be some gnarly body horror in Possessor because this is directed by baby Cronenberg, but I was still caught off guard at that scene with the teeth. Anything to do with teeth just makes me gag, it feels more real to me than other gore for whatever reason.

In all seriousness, I can definitely see where Brandon Cronenberg got his influence, but at the same time his work feels distinct from his father’s. The atmosphere reminded me very much of a Black Mirror episode. In a way I expected more from this concept, but I did enjoy it and will watch his future films.
