An unsung masterpiece the film that prefigures everything thats in Antichrist Mark Kermode
A film by ANDRZEJ ŻULAWSKI
Beyond the realm of human desire there is a darkness
A horror film like no other, Possession is an intense, shocking experience that was banned in the UK as a video nasty. With its dark subject matter and high gore quotient, its not for the faint hearted.
With their marriage in pieces Anna and Marks tense relationship has become a psychotic descent into screaming matches, violence and self-mutilation. Believing his wifes only lover is the sinister Heinrich, Mark is unaware of the demonic, tentacled creature that Anna has hidden away for liaisons in a deserted apartment and will stop at nothing to protect.
Written and directed by Andrzej Żuławski, Possession is a deeply unsettling experience, aided by the horrific special effects of the great Carlo Rambaldi (Deep Red, Close Encounters, Alien) The film, though banned on video, was nominated for a BAFTA and the Palme dOr and Adjanis astonishing performance earned her Best Actress awards at the Cannes Film Festival and the French Cesars.
