In an alternative world that is eerily close to reality, Tasya Vos (Andrea Riseborough) is an elite, corporate assassin who takes control of other people’s bodies to execute her high-profile targets. Hijacking people’s minds and ruthlessly manipulating them to carry out undetectable murder-suicides, Tasya is the ideal undercover operative.
But the impact of her work seems to be taking its toll. As she sinks deeper into her latest assignment to kill a powerful media mogul (Sean Bean), she finds herself trapped inside the mind of a headstrong man (Christopher Abbott) who threatens to obliterate her.
Writer/director Brandon Cronenberg‘s provocative sophomore feature is a wickedly enjoyable and gruesome sci-fi thriller, plunging the viewer into a remarkable modern update on the body-horror genre pioneered by his father, David Cronenberg. This distinctive, intelligent and gory film is unlike anything else released this year, with astonishing performances from Riseborough and Abbott.
