Possessor follows an agent who works for a secretive organization that uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people's bodies - ultimately driving them to commit assassinations for high-paying clients.
Tasya Vos is a corporate agent who uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people's bodies, driving them to commit assassinations for the benefit of the company. While she has a special gift for the work, her experiences on these jobs have caused a dramatic change in her, and in her own life she struggles to suppress violent memories and urges. As her mental strain intensifies, she begins to lose control, and soon she finds herself trapped in the mind of a man whose identity threatens to destroy her own.
Cronenberg has said there are several deleted scenes, as well as behind the scenes featurettes, that will be available for the home video release of the film. A director's commentary track may be added but has not yet been recorded as of the theatrical release in October 2020. See more »
When John Parse is being mutilated, his skin in the close-up shots of the wounds on his face looks completely different than it does in the rest of the scene. Mainly, it has a different color and is much smoother. See more »
Possessor exists as a cut US R rated version and an uncut MPA Unrated Version titled Possessor Uncut. The producers were keen to differentiate between the two versions and the 'Uncut' tag is an official re-titling of the film. UK releases are the Uncut Version and are 18 rated. See more »

Visually good, but..
... that's pretty much it. It just looks good. Well, the acting is alright too, i guess. The pacing is way too slow, literally 2/3 could've been cut into a 12 minutes run time. Though the concept is nice, they didn't able to make an interesting plot (if even there's any plot at all). The "weird imagery" and "violent" that sole purpose to make it edgy-artsy, didn't work. It ended up boring and dull.
