Shocking, mind-bending, taboo. A well thought out sci-fi thriller that can easily offend. But, it downright brilliant in its concept and the way it is told. Brandon Cronenberg steps out from his father's shadow and delivers the goods.
A punch to the gut that never compromises. The 4k Uncut version is debatable. Not the picture, but the content. Some prefer the theatrical cut, turned off by the violence and sex while others find it far more powerful. Either way, Possessor Uncut demands to be seen.
Awesome film, director Brandon Cronenberg has his father's genes that is for sure. Anyone buying the uncut version (only version in 4k) should be aware if rated it would be an easy NC-17 (the MPA is very squeamish of extreme gore, violence, and sexuality). The story is top notch. Brandon also casts a familiar face from his father David's "eXIstenZ" in Jennifer Jason Leigh here. A story of identity, technology, and high tech assasinations. Tremendous film.
Wow - a captivating story, haunting visuals, and graphic brutal violence in all its uncensored glory - this is what makes for an amazing viewing; improved with repeated viewings, guarantee it's not for everyone but will certainly not leave your mind once you're done watching. Highly recommended!
The movie is a good movie and I can see why it has a great rotten tomatoes rating. However it does leave you wanting more and is a bit meta and leaves it open to your interpretation and trying to challenge your thoughts. So recommend but keep this in mind.
There's actual pornography in this movie, just a heads up because it really took me and other viewers by surprise... Other than that it was a great movie and it's good to see something dark and thought provoking from David's son.
CRAZY FILM. If you like David Cronenberg stuff you'll like his son. . packaging was great. beautiful, crystal clear picture quality. Best Buy customer service is always number the absolute best. Couldn't recommend this more. I'm 100 perfect satisfied. great Stuff!
Brandon Cronenberg’s Possessor lives up to the families namesake, the justly violent imagery the subtle set designs and small details set in the not so quite dark futuristic world make this movie stand apart and worth watching. Great acting by everyone, Creepy, trippy a must watch.
a really good horror movie for the end of the year
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
this movie was a big shocker! i didnt have my hoped high for this, the trailers made it seem simple, but the end product and execution was pretty good! this isnt a full blown horror movie i take it more as a slasher
