Andrzej Zulawski’s POSSESSION

Celebrate Halloween night with one of the most bizarre and exciting movies in the horror genre, Andrzej Zulawki’s pulse-pounding film about a woman in the midst of a divorce, POSSESSION!

“Not since HAUSU has a restored underground classic taken the world of cinephiles by storm like POSSESSION. This has long been a favorite of ours, even though it has only been available on video bootlegs and badly cut 35mm prints. Now [..], thousands more people are having their brain reshaped by its intense, gory, psychosexual brilliance. Ostensibly a film about a break-up, director Andrzej Zulawski takes an overkill approach to pure cinema. Volumes could (and should) be written about the technical brilliance of the camerawork and sound – all of which shows the astonishing assurance of the greatest masters of the art, but the area where POSSESSION really takes flight is the performances. Sam Neill and especially Isabelle Adjani leave it all on the set, reaching deep into themselves to lift the material to even greater heights. This is not like any other movie you’ve ever seen before. It’s better. Featuring a bizarre and unfathomably awesome music score by Andrzej Korzynski and creature effects by Carlo Rambaldi. If you have to choose between the birth of your first child and this film, choose this film. Highest possible recommendation.”
-Lars, Alamo Drafthouse
