We're thrilled to be highlighting Brandon Cronenberg's POSSESSOR, not only with a poster, but also with a double vinyl soundtrack featuring incredible artwork from Randy Ortiz.
POSSESSOR is one of the year's best genre films. If you can handle its face-melting violence, then you are in for a visual and sonic treat.
It's a visceral and unflinching assault on the senses that centers around Tanya Vos, a skilled corporate assassin. Using highly classified technology, she enters the minds of unsuspecting victims, hijacking their brains and bodies to carry out brutal murders without getting blood on her hands. As untraceable as she is, her memory and mind begins to fuse with her hosts'. As her sanity unravels, the stage is set for a blistering and brutal showdown. The film is in drive-ins and theaters this week courtesy of our friends at Neon.
The poster and record go on sale Friday at 11am CST, with the poster available via The Drop.
POSSESSOR Original soundtrack vinyl 2XLP
Death Waltz Recording Co, in conjunction with our friends at Lakeshore Records, are proud to present the soundtrack to POSSESSOR by composer Jim Williams (RAW; A FIELD IN ENGLAND).
"Williams delivers an incredible and singular piece of work scoring Brandon Cronenberg's POSSESSOR. The film is one of my favourites of 2020 and probably one of the most intense features I've seen in years. Williams' soundtrack is a sonic journey through a fractured mind, much like the film melds the organic and the artificial to stunning effect. Dreamy and ominous synths weave otherworldly textures as violas, violins, and discordant choral vocals converge to create something quite spectacular and terrifying.
As with the best scores, it's one that rewards with repeat listens. At first, you would be forgiven for thinking it's a very straightforward and moody score, but hidden depth and layers reveal themselves on repeated listens. A couple of tracks have an almost abstract jazz feel to them under the dissonance and noise. Overall this is a stunning piece of work, and one that requires your full time and attention." - Spencer

In addition to the soundtrack release, we're excited to have a poster for POSSESSOR. Both coldly futuristic and primally biological, Randy Ortiz's incredible artwork is a perfect representation of the film's unique tone. It's a brilliant balance of contradictions: empathetic while anti-human, focusing intently on the human body, but as the flawed machine it is.
