IN BRIEF: Possessed (2014) Fantasia 2015

Wickedly funny, not for kids (blood, nudity, cursing) animated film has the son of a power couple becoming possessed and turning to a defrocked priest for help. Its wicked and wild ride that's hysterical.

A vicious satire of the Catholic Church, the rich, family relationships and horror films, this is a film that has something to make everyone laugh. Its a twisted Claymation style where the priest is called Lenin, the evil spirit is Cthulu, space stations can kill you dead and nothing is sacred.

I would love to say more but I can't, I was too doubled over with laughter to take notes. And frankly I don't want to spoil the jokes or the joys (the film riffs brilliantly on several well known horror movies)

An absolute must see when it plays later today and on the 24th at Fantasia. For tickets and more information go here.

This is one of my favorite films at Fantasia and maybe the year. When is this going to get a US release?
