A disgraced children’s puppeteer returns to his childhood home and is forced to confront his wicked stepfather and the secrets that have tortured him his entire life.
After returning to his childhood home, a disgraced children’s puppeteer is forced to confront his wicked stepfather and the dark secrets that have tortured his entire life. A supernatural horror combining the stark psychodrama of George A. Romero’s MARTIN with the uncanny terror of DEAD OF NIGHT, Sean Harris gives a tour-de-force performance as Philip in this bleak and understated exercise in creeping dread. Informed as much by silent cinema expressionism, the British classics THE INNOCENTS and DON’T LOOK NOW, and the claustrophobic suburban Gothic atmosphere of Pete Walker’s FRIGHTMARE, POSSUM will terrify in the best shock corridor tradition.
Starring Sean Harris, Alun Armstrong, Simon Bubb, Andy Blithe, Pamela Cook, Charlie Eales
Awards & Reviews
Edinburgh International Film Festival, Galway Film Fleadh Official Selections
“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..” – Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter
“Possum excels in ways some horror doesn’t. It strikes the nerve between horror and emotion, between wanting to cry and wanting to scream.” – Katie Driscoll, Starburst
