A man trying to escape his past finds his past continually chasing him down in Possum, a chilling new horror film arriving on DVD on 4th March 2019 from Spirit Entertainment.
Philip (Sean Harris, Mission: Impossible - Fallout & Rogue Nation, Deliver Us From Evil), a disgraced children's puppeteer, returns to his dilapidated childhood home and lecherous stepfather, Maurice (Alun Armstrong, Braveheart). Philip is intent on destroying "Possum", a hideously malformed spider-puppet he carries with him in a brown leather case. Unfortunately, and horrifically, Possum refuses to be abandoned.
Philip's mind is flooded with painful half-memories and nightmarish visions, and when he finds himself embroiled in a local investigation surrounding a missing boy, he grows 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 Marenghi's Darkplace) Possum is a twisted trip of terror where both nothing and everything is exactly as it seems.
Adding to Possum's eerie atmosphere is an original soundtrack by the iconic electronic research lab The Radiophonic Workshop (Doctor Who).
