Description

Disgraced children's puppeteer Philip returns to his childhood home of Fallmarsh, Norfolk, intent on destroying Possum, a hideous puppet he keeps hidden inside a brown leather bag. When his attempts fail, Philip is forced to confront his sinister stepfather Maurice in an effort to escape the dark horrors of his past. Possum is a dark and distinctive psychological thriller from writer/director Matthew Holness (co-creator of Garth Marenghi's Darkplace) with stark and captivating performances from Sean Harris (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) and Alun Armstrong (Get Carter). The film's stylish and abstract exploration of real life horrors through one man's isolation and abandonment is accompanied by a compelling soundtrack from the legendary Radiophonic Workshop.
