Possessor

Like father, like son.

Brandon Cronenberg, trafficking in that sci fi-tinged body horror which made pops David a legend, scores big-time with this sleek, suspenseful tale of an assassin bouncing from body to body.

Doing dirty work under the watchful eye of a quietly-sinister Jennifer Jason Leigh, Andrea Riseborough gets in through a brain hook-up, then uses her new body to commit murder and mayhem.

She’s supposed to force her host to commit suicide before her brain jumps back home, but finds herself trapped after a big hit gets messy.

Clever and compelling, proof that the (Hollywood) kids are alright.
