Scarecrowber: Possession


France | 1981 | 123 min. | Andrej Zulawski

October 23 - 27, 2023


A woman starts exhibiting increasingly disturbing behavior after asking her husband for a divorce. Suspicions of infidelity soon give way to something much more sinister.

Possession is never what it seems. It could be described as Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets The Brood meets Scenes From A Marriage, but ultimately the film is uniquely its own. It is a film about obsession, divorce, betrayal, faith, and sexual expression. It is also a film about psychosis, murder, doppelgängers, and depravity. Whether or not Possession resonates with you personally, it will demand your attention and offer an unforgettable experience that will change the way you see horror as well as romance. “I have seen half of God’s face here, the other half is you…”
