Possessor: Uncut

Critics Consensus

Further refining his provocative vision, writer-director Brandon Cronenberg uses Possessor's potentially over-the-top premise as a delivery mechanism for stylishly disturbing thrills.

  • The role's a perfect fit for Riseborough, a consummate character actor who slides so skillfully into a part that you'd swear you're seeing someone brand new each time she appears on screen.

  • Cronenberg has a lot of high-minded ideas, but he grounds them in human behavior and has found the right humans to tell his story.

  • If Possessor ultimately feels more like a testament to its director's excellent taste in influences than a film that entirely gels in itself, it's still a thoroughly troubling watch.

  • If this is just a taste of what Brandon Cronenberg has in store for cinema, then long live the new flesh.

  • Think of it as "Parasite," the literal version.

  • The provocative ideas are not given a chance to really take on a life of their own. Still, there's much here that is imaginative and fresh.

Audience Reviews for Possessor: Uncut

  • Oct 23, 2020
    Possessor 2020 B+ The main character is an assassin using computer chips to take over other people and then do the killing in their bodies. Billed as a horror movie, I figured it was a mislabeled sci-fi action. Nope, it was a horror, mostly. Above all else, this movie is a head trip. You've got to be in the right mood for a psychedelic movie like this, and I was, so it worked out. The story ends up being really simple, which is important because very little is explained. You either go along for the ride and don't worry about it, or you scan every detail to try keep up. As an action movie, it wasn't exciting enough. As a horror is wasn't scary enough. As sci-fi it didn't use technology enough. As an acid trip it was perfect but that's all you are going to get out of this film and I'm not much for the genre. I mean the entire movie could have been avoided at any time by someone saying "stop, you're being dumb" and having the main character listen. The movie was exceptional for it's ability to not confuse the audience about what was real and what was illusion, and that shows skilled craftsmanship.
