Screaming Queenz

Ep 91 - Possum

May 17, 2019

The Queenz are in need of some therapy and a good hot shower after watching Possum, the 2018 British horror from director Matthew Holness. Starring Sean Harris as Philip, a disgraced children's puppeteer, Possum takes us to MR James country amidst the desolate marshes of Norfolk but this ain't no Christmas ghost story. Possum paints a blackened portrait of post-Jimmy Savile Britain. An oppressive story of the trauma of abuse, it is horror in its rawest, nastiest form. So how did the Screaming Queenz react to a group viewing?

This is heavy stuff so be warned - but obvs even in the darkest of corners we find something to cackle about so it's not all doom and gloom! Prepare to be spoiled - and soiled (sorry).
