Synopsis

A disgraced children’s puppeteer (Sean Harris, Mission: Impossible - Fallout) returns to his dilapidated childhood home and lecherous stepfather (Alun Armstrong), intent on destroying ‘Possum’, a hideously malformed spider-puppet he carries with him in a brown leather case. His mind flooded with painful half-memories and nightmarish visions, he soon finds himself embroiled in a local investigation for a missing boy, progressively unsure of what’s real and what’s not. All the while Possum seems to mock his suffering at every turn.

 

A hallucinatory venture into a truly damaged psyche, Matthew Holness’ (Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace) POSSUM is a twisted trip of terror where both nothing and everything is exactly as it seems.

Reviews:

“A simple but overwhelmingly frightening horror story, wrapped in atmosphere so thick you could drown in it.” – Birth.Movies.Death

 

“Gorgeously stark…will unsettle you to your core.” – Bloody-Disgusting

“Holness has created a new modern horror figure for our time that could stand alongside recent scaremongers such as The Babadook.” – Film Inquiry

 

“Crawls under your skin.” – Time Out New York
