Possession

SF Film

While the Spanish flu epidemic is sweeping across the continent, a priest and his son return home to their family in rural Norway from missionary service in Madagascar. The priest has been tasked with deciding the location of a new church for the local mining company, which reveals itself to be on top of an old Sami burial ground. When the priest decides to have the remains dug up and removed, the dead come alive and haunt the settlers.

POSSESSION, although set in the beginning of the 20th century, is frighteningly relevant, as the Spanish Flu epidemic is the starting point of the story. The film unveils the darkness of human nature when under ungraspable pressure. Self-taught acclaimed director, Henrik Martin Dahlsbakken’s feature debut “Returning Home” was selected as the official Norwegian Oscar entry in 2015. He has an impressive slate of thriller features behind him, and this time he has thrown himself at a horror-drama.
