Violent, shocking, and disgusting

"Bossisor" ... fails in science fiction and succeeds in horror


Possessor Uncut is a sci-fi / horror movie from Canadian Brandon Kronenberg - Does the name sound familiar?

Yes, it is, because Brandon is the son of David Cronenberg, the famous Canadian filmmaker with “A History of Violence,” “Eastern Promises,” and “Videodrome,” and the most famous movie, The Fly, in 1986, which is a replay of the same title released in 1986. 1958.

We can say that “the son is his father’s secret,” or that the father would have made him happy at some point during the past four decades, because he is known for making this type of film that transcends borders.

It's clear that Brandon was influenced by his father in terms of the style of the film and the taste for the material.

If we look at it as a science fiction movie, "Possessor" is disappointing and there are no new ideas in it.

But if we look at it as a horror movie, it is successful by all standards of this sub-direction of horror cinema launched by his father and became its pioneer, which is the horror of mutilated bodies.

"Bossisor" is a very disturbing and shocking film that continues to highlight the violence with its disgusting details, which continue the length of the film without being reduced in any part.

This is a movie in which you see an eye being poked with a sharp object and there is a lot of bloodshed that will hurt the sensitive viewer.

Bossisor introduces us to the professional assassin Tasya (Andrea Risborough), who has gained an excellent reputation in her industry.

Tasya kills by employing the most insidious method: she obsesses, using a device similar to a face mask, that takes her into space that allows her to enter the interior of someone close to the victim.

You acquire the character of the relative and kill the target, then you kill the relative.

A relative might be a secretary to a manager, a friend of a girl, and so on.

Then she takes her conscience or herself and returns to her body through the device itself.

The style is psychologically tiring, and there is a risk that she will lose part of her personality whenever she uses the device and acquires the conscience / personality of others.

This particular part is a cliché.

After completing her mission, Tasya must undergo a set of tests, in order to determine if she is able to perform the next task.

The film begins with a glimpse of the heroine's last mission, after successfully completing her, she was unable to commit suicide, meaning to make the possessed character kill herself with a gun.

Instead of being locked up in the possessor's body, she is behaving in a way that causes the police to shoot and kill her.

This indicates a disturbing pattern of behavior that will feature more in her upcoming mission, which is the assassination of wealthy businessman John Pars (Sean Bean) and his daughter Ava (Tobins Middleton).

For this assignment, Tasia acquires Ava's fiancé Colin (Christopher Abbott).

What starts out as a regular task turns into something very complicated because of Tasya's weakness.

Body snatchers are prominent in the science fiction genre, whether in literature, film or television.

Novels have covered the topic, and short stories, many films and countless series episodes have been published.

But it's rare for her to be overly violent.

"Bossisor" is interested in highlighting the bloody violence more than the sudden jumps of panic, which have become a prominent feature of contemporary horror, and this is what takes it out of the category of psychological suspense, although it delves into the character of Tasia and her psychological struggle against Cullen, and puts it under the category of science fiction / horror.

Brandon is obsessed with his character Tasya, he presented her in a weak state at the beginning, until he paved the way to dismantle her in the end while she lost her control over Coleen, and we did not spoil anything on the scenes, the word deconstruction here is very general, the important thing is how he will dismantle it in the end that contains a surprise of a heavy caliber.

Kronenberg is not afraid to violate the taboo of film endings until he presents his biggest surprise, which arouses disgust as a result of drowning in violence.

Kronenberg has made a good choice of his characters, the heroine and the hero are not stars.

Risboro plays her role with extreme coldness, which breaks down to reveal the weakness that is beneath him. As for Abbott, his task may be more difficult because he performs two characters: Tasya within him and his character resists them.

There are two stars in the movie older than its protagonists, and they both play a supporting role, the first being Jennifer Jason Lee as Tasya's mentor.

The second is Sean Bien, a target of the killer.

Bien usually performs evil characters or a hero with bad traits, and this time his character is more of a villain.

Bossisaur has two tones: the first is dark and the second is darker and darker.

And when it comes to violence, Kronenberg makes pools of blood that you might not even see in the gory Saw movies.

The scenes of blood in the film reached their maximum and here is a pause, as the cinematic convention is that the more blood the film approaches the comic scale, as we see in Quentin Tarantino's films (Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, as two examples).

This was the reality of the low-budget bloody monster movies of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

But Cronenberg is not interested in reducing the blood to prove the seriousness of the story, at the same time, this is definitely not a movie for fun in the time of "Covid-19", but rather a violent, disgusting and grim movie with the full significance of these characteristics.
