Dark Sky Films Proudly Announces
The Highly Anticipated Directorial Debut of Matthew Holness
From the producers of The Survivalist and I Am Not a Serial Killer
IN THEATERS AND ON DIGITAL PLATFORMS
NOVEMBER 2, 2018
A disgraced children’s puppeteer (Sean Harris, Mission: Impossible – Fallout) returns to his dilapidated childhood home and 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, Matthew Holness’ (Garth Merenghi’s Darkplace) POSSUM is a twisted trip of terror where both nothing and everything is exactly as it seems.
