A disgraced children’s puppeteer (Sean Harris from Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation and Mission: Impossible: Fallout) returns to his dilapidated childhood home and his 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, writer/director Matthew Holness‘ Possum is a twisted trip of terror where both nothing and everything is exactly as it seems. Check out the trailer below and click here to pre-order your copy.
