Possessor Uncut – Tasya Vos (Andrea Riseborough) is Girder’s (Jennifer Jason Leigh) star assassin, who takes over the mind of individuals using a brain-implant technology to carry out high-profile assassinations. After every mission, Vos says she’s fine and passes the mental test when she returns to her body. But her life is sad and depleted, with an ex-husband (Rossif Sutherland) and a young son who lives with him. Vos is then assigned a lucrative new job. This one involves taking over the brain of Colin Tate, the future son-in-law of a corporate mogul. But Colin doesn’t make it easy and she becomes trapped inside a mind that threatens to obliterate her. Available Dec. 8 on DVD/Blu-ray/VOD/Digital.

Possessor Uncut stars Andrea Riseborough and Christopher Abbott talk about sharing the same role and the conversations between them. Andrea shares the out-of-body experience she had as they were mirroring each other’s movements and Chris details how he relates to the theme of identity. They also reveal that if they were to be implanted into director Brandon Cronenberg’s mind, what valuable information they’d steal.

Alice is extremely confused when she discovers hypocrisy within those who are attending the retreat, but finds relief from an unlikely ally who opens her eyes to what it really means to be a good person. Available Dec. 8 on DVD/VOD/Digital.

She Dies Tomorrow – After waking up convinced that she is going to die tomorrow, Amy strongly believes there is no future for her. She tells her friend Jane that she’s going to die.

    I’m thankful that I took a chance an reached out to an old room-mate of mine from 1979. She has proven to be my Savior during COVID-19. Has supported me by taking me to doctor’s appointments. If I need anything I know I just need to make a phone call and she will come running to help. While she has a husband and two grown sons all living together (with girlfriends) and working full time from home; I can’t believe she could find time for me. Audrey you are appreciated and loved. You have been there for me in my darkest of hours. I am blessed to have you in my life.
