Writer/director Matthew Holness was quoted saying: "Possum is a supernatural horror combining the stark psycho-drama of George Romero’s Martin with the uncanny terror of Dead of Night. The film draws on the dark nightmares of silent Expressionist horror, British classics such as The Innocents and Don’t Look Now, as well as the claustrophobic suburban Gothic of Pete Walker’s Frightmare. Possum will terrify in the best tradition of classic horror cinema, evoking an atmosphere of supernatural dread and creeping horror."
This marks the directorial debut of actor Matthew Holness.
