  • Like an actual nightmare, it's the imagery you'll remember more than the narrative.

  • Although it could stand to shave a few minutes off its runtime, Possessor benefits from a fascinating premise and exceptional cast.

    January 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • If his film struggles to articulate why the stability of being someone is too valuable to exchange for the freedom of being anyone, Cronenberg only gets better and better at illustrating the same point.

    January 27, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • This sleekly executed work is of its time, exhibiting the chilly aesthetic and psychotropic overlay seen in some of the best indie sci-fi/horror films of recent years.

    January 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • So well crafted that it's likely to make a lot of other Sundance films feel relatively amateurish. But as both writer and director, Cronenberg focuses so intently on the surface that he neglects to include enough substance.

    January 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Confirms [Brandon] Cronenberg as one of the most provocative talents working in or out of the horror genre.
