Like father like son? Brandon Cronenberg’s Possessor is a slick, perfectly cast, perfectly shot and perfectly edited horror film. Tasva Vos (Andrea Riseborough) is a corporate agent who uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people’s bodies. That’s step one. Step two is then have them commit crimes for her company. Unfortunately with each brain switch there is a certain amount of mind-melding, which produces helps drive the plot and the tension thanks to unforeseen side effects.

Possessor is a Canada/United Kingdom co-production and features an international cast. It was chosen to have its World Premiere in the World Cinema Drama Competition at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2020
