The debut feature from writer/director Matthew Holness, co-creator and writer/star of the cult TV series Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, this psychological thriller pays homage to the British horror films of the ‘70s. The film’s abstract exploration of a man’s isolation and abandonment is accompanied by a compelling soundtrack from the legendary electronic BBC music studio The Radiophonic Workshop.  Disgraced children’s puppeteer Philip (Sean Harris), returns to his childhood home of Fallmarsh, Norfolk, intent on destroying Possum, a hideous puppet he keeps hidden inside a brown leather bag. When his attempts fail, Philip is forced to confront his sinister stepfather Maurice (Alun Armstrong) in an effort to escape the dark horrors of his past. 

Followed by a Q&A with director Matthew Holness.
