Possessor

EVENT INFORMATION
event image

We continue Spooktober with Possessor, directed by Brandon Cronenberg, perhaps most famous for being David Cronenberg’s son. Unlike many artists who try to distance themselves from their celebrity parents, Cronenberg follows closely in his father’s footsteps, creating a piece of body horror film to rival the latter’s work. In Possessor, we follow Tasya Vos, an assassin in an alternate-universe where people have the technology to switch bodies with each other. We follow as Tasya carries out a mission and gradually becomes attached to the body that she possesses. One of the films greatest strengths is the visuals, giving a modern CGI take to the visuals one would expect of a cronenburg movie. Still, this film is more than just gory schlock. The film is effective at exploring deeper themes such as identity and how we construct it, and the film lends itself well to an allegorical reading of transgenderism, exploring ideas of bodily dysmorphia and feeling more comfortable within another body.
