Critic Reviews for Possum

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (6)

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 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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."

November 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Not an easy film to like by design, but formally impressive nonetheless.

October 25, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Holness makes his debut behind the camera in expertly clammy style.

October 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is deadly serious, but carries with it an echo or ghost of how this same material could have been played as ironic black comedy.

October 24, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.
