POSSUM (15) – 2018 UK 85 min – Halloween Horror Show

Director: Matthew Holness
Stars: Sean Harris, Alun Armstrong

Returning to his childhood home, a disgraced puppeteer is forced to confront his wicked stepfather and the dark secrets that have plagued his entire life. Shot on 35mm and drawing inspiration from some of the darker British shockers of the 1970s, this understated exercise in creeping dread is a remarkable debut feature from writer/director Holness. Possum strikes the nerve between horror and emotion’ (Starburst) and festival screenings have gained rave reviews, so we’re delighted to present it during the first week of a limited UK release.

Plus Shiver (15, 8 min), a spine-chilling BRIT Showcase short directed by Mykea Perry, about a girl left home alone on Halloween.
