Critic Reviews for Possum

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (3)

Holness firmly captures the feel of '70s British horror -- the oppressively close atmosphere is so powerful, you can almost smell the damp.

Top Critic

Possum ultimately has to stand or fall on its own merits, and at heart is a serious and dark journey into the labyrinths of cruelty and abuse.

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Despite all it has going for it, the movie's undercooked plot and dialogue keep it from breaking out of its trauma.

Nov 8, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

It slowly builds tension to a disturbing denouement.

Possum is an impressively chilling debut from Holness and credit must go to the director for taking a risk on a darker affair.
