November 2, 2018
Holness firmly captures the feel of '70s British horror -- the oppressively close atmosphere is so powerful, you can almost smell the damp.
November 2, 2018
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."

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.
May 19, 2019
Possum manages to not only push boundaries with its nightmarish imagery, but also find the right narrative journey to justify those scares.
April 28, 2019
Holness conjures a disturbing view of what child abuse does to an adult later in life, mixing British kitchen sink realism with surreal dark fantasy.

An ambitiously unpleasant and gorgeously stark film shot on 35mm.
April 15, 2019
Chilling genre fare that crawls its way beneath your skin like dirt under badly-bitten fingernails.
March 5, 2019
Possum is not particularly scary, but its portrait of a ruined life and horror of psychological trauma will haunt viewers well after the cut to black.

The monster here is all too real, and Possumexpertly works through it, leaving behind a ghostly memory of a tragic story beautifully told.
February 11, 2019
It's almost too creepy and unnerving for its own good.
