Queer Horror Nights presents: Possessor

103 mins

Queer Horror Nights presents DADDY ISSUES?, a trans-morphing double dose of sci-fi body horror from the biological father and son of the sub-genre: David Cronenberg’s THE FLY (1986) and Brandon Cronenberg’s POSSESSOR (2020).


Cronenberg Jnr. invested heavily in the family farm with his sensational sophomore feature, POSSESSOR (2020). A gob-smacking slice of sci-fi mayhem, POSSESSOR is about an assassin (Andrea Riseborough) whose consciousness can be transplanted into, and take control of, someone close to her next target. Inevitable glitches in the system result in catastrophic side-effects for both the parasite and her latest host (Christopher Abbott). POSSESSOR uses practical, gender-switching gore effects to amplify its hallucinatory violence to the ultimate extreme.

POSSESSOR will be presented with an introduction by your horror host, TOKEN HOMO, and you’re invited to linger in the venue bar afterwards for a social.

Queer Horror Nights is a film club devoted to queer, cult and classic horror cinema. Follow your co-hosts @tokenhomo x @lastframeclub for all the gory details.

Programme supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London. Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery.
