Synopsis:
After recently seeing Infinity Pool and greatly enjoying it, I decided to go back and revisit the first film that introduced me to director Brandon Cronenberg: Possessor. After studying both cuts of the film for nearly a month, I got it in my head that I would attempt to create the longest version possible of this film using as much footage from both cuts as possible and reinserting the deleted scenes present on the releases.

I am proud to present: Possessor Complete.
Intention:
To create the longest version of Possessor possible.
Additional Notes:
Possessor Uncut was used as the main base of this edit, while alternate shots from the R-Rated cut were sprinkled throughout in their proper sequencing to extend scenes here and there. The three deleted scenes presented on the Uncut and R-Rated versions have been fully reintegrated into the edit as well.

Possessor (R-Rated Cut) Blu-ray: The R-Rated cut of the film where several shot extensions and the three deleted scenes were sourced from here.

Special Thanks:
To Brandon Cronenberg: for writing and directing a film that I highly regard.
To my girlfriend: for pushing me to begin this project and helping me see it through to the end.
Release Information:
Digital
Special Features:
- 5.1 surround and stereo audio mixes.
Editing Details:
For the shot extensions that were carried over from the R-Rated cut, I simply ported over shots that would extend their respective scenes, and left out an alternate sequence that was present in the R-Rated cut for censorship reasons (the idea was to present this fanedit uncensored as much as possible).

The reintegrated deleted scenes were color corrected and graded using DaVinci Resolve.

The accompanying stereo audio for the deleted scenes were upmixed to 5.1 surround sound using NUGEN Audio's Halo Upmix in Adobe Audition so that I could present this project in full surround sound.
Cuts and Additions:
00:00:00:00: Added FE Warning.
00:00:06:07: Added Dark Netflix Style FE logo.

Have you ever seen "The Parallax View"? This movie might be the 2.0 update to that.

This ultimate cut is cool, and editor kidjupiter92 did excellent work because I saw nothing stand-out or jarring. I really enjoyed the story, and knowing that this had all the relevant footage was extra nice.

Possessor is a modern masterpiece but can be confusing in its forms of release. This version is essentially a 'kitchen sink' approach, which will be my new go to version. However the film itself is not for everybody. In my opinion, the r rated cut has some vital bits from the unrated version missing and the unrated version can at times, be unnecessarily extreme. I would love to see a balanced cut using this as it's base. But that would be down to personal preference.

The quality of this release deserves the 10s across the boards as the work put in is flawless. Especially impressive is the integration of the r rated footage which needed to be colour corrected to match.

The file is rather large at 40gb but worth the download to preserve the exceptional fidelity and amazing soundtrack.
