Possum is the debut feature film from writer/director Matthew Holness, co-creator and writer/star of the cult TV series Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace and based on his own short story that was published in ‘The New Uncanny’ anthology. It stars Sean Harris (Mission: Impossible, Southcliffe) and Alun Armstrong (Frontier, Get Carter) and this distinctive psychological thriller pays homage to the classic British horror films of the 70s. Holness’ film is a unique and stylish exploration of a man’s isolation and abandonment, and it’s accompanied by a compelling soundtrack from the legendary electronic BBC music studio The Radiophonic Workshop.
The story follows disgraced children’s puppeteer Philip (Harris), returning to his childhood home of Fallmarsh, Norfolk, intent on destroying Possum, a hideous puppet he keeps hidden inside a brown leather bag. When his attempts fail, Philip is forced to confront his sinister stepfather Maurice (Armstrong) in an effort to escape the dark horrors of his past.
