(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

POSSESSOR: This story of mind-control is similar to previous films. There are many strange camera angles that do not help the story, and its combination of visual effects with live-action is original, and at times, it has a cartoon-like feel, but the story does not seem to support it. It is hard to tell; the plot is not clearly explained, though it gets better as it goes along. There are obvious parallels to THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE. This is the sort of film that could have starred a Matt Damon or a Ben Affleck, but it does a fair amount on a small budget. Released 10/02/20; available on Amazon Prime, Apple TV+, and other services and DVD. Rating: +1 (-4 to +4)
