A brand new 35mm print of Andrzej Zulawski’s 1981 underground classic Possession. For fans of the early films of David Cronenberg and David Lynch, this movie blurs the line between high art and grotesque horror. The film was heavily edited when originally released in the United States, with over 40 minutes cut from the running time. This new print is the original director’s cut of the film.
Possession (1981) Mark (Sam Neill) comes home from months on the road to find his wife Anna (Isabelle Adjani in an incredible performance) ready to divorce him. Distraught and angry, he tracks down her lover, but discovers a secret hidden from both of the men. Anna has given birth to a demon lover, and she’ll go to violent lengths to protect it. When doppelgangers of Mark and Anna appear (also played by Neill and Adjani), the couple grow increasingly erratic, as they sink deeper into madness and obsession.
