Possession (Sapi)

de Brillante Mendoza


Brillante Mendoza delves deep into possession cinema. And he does it through Meryll, a reporter whose longing to get more audience knows no limits. Obsessed with success, Meryll will try to get her hands on the competition’s material and will wind up contemplating, live and direct, what evil really is. A forceful horror film and a scathing critique of mass media.
