Critic Reviews for Possum

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (35) | Rotten (4)

  • In taking his inspiration from Jimmy Savile, Holness has placed at the centre of his film the sort of bogeyman who could give even Michael Myers nightmares.

    January 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Holness firmly captures the feel of '70s British horror -- the oppressively close atmosphere is so powerful, you can almost smell the damp.

  • The film has a striking aesthetic and atmospheric assurance that takes a particular British miserabilism into near-abstract terrain, not unlike Cronenberg's vaguely similar (if more rigorously plotted) "Spider."

  • In the end, there's little payoff for all the repetitive series of evocative visions and mute stares.

    October 28, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Not an easy film to like by design, but formally impressive nonetheless.

    October 25, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Holness makes his debut behind the camera in expertly clammy style.
