    Possession

    ★★★★★

    An epic month of five stars continues! And I have two other pictures (Repo Man and Dial M for Murder) that are probably going to be fivers too. Really making good picks, though I suppose Hitchcock is inherently masterful.

    Possession is the next beast, and what a snarling thing it is. Its raw emotion reaches outwards, sucking you in like oil to pipe. Horrifically bleak, vile and depraved! Possession will do just that, you will be possessed. And funnily enough…

    ★★★★

    Really really fun 80s cult classic! Featuring two strong ass ladies! and a big ol heap of human dust, and mutant cannibal freaks! Not that there's actually much of that in the film, but when they're on screen it's cool.
    Especially the police officer freaks in the dream, they were so cool! And I believe feature on the Arrow Video release of this!

    Strange that a lot of cult classics are directed by someone, who either has made barely any…
