Experiencing Interruptions?

Natural Possession - Director's Cut

Natural Possession is an experimental horror film. Step inside and experience the mind of a mentally ill artist.

Someone is killing homeless people in Pioneer Square. Local artist John Willem has been known to suffer from mental delusions but he believes he is having psychic visions about the killer's identity; is it a gruesome, terrifying monster or the performance artist downstairs?

Desperately reaching out to his vanity driven, lust crazed friends only gets him stabbed in the back and sinks John deeper into psychosis. Confessing his visions to the local police gets him ridiculed. Now John is in a race against borrowed time. It's up to him to save himself. Too bad John's own narcissism conceals a much more sinister plot; a running bet for control of the entire universe.

What exactly goes on inside the head of a mentally ill, narcissist artist struggling to save the universe from the forces of Good vs. Evil?

The film was shot on 16mm and set in Pioneer Square, Seattle. It examines the horror of homelessness and mental illness while poking fun at the local art scene.

Antony (director) is a resident artist of the TK Artists Lofts. He was able to utilize the building for sets and collaborate with many talented artists in the production of this film. Several of his artist neighbors worked on the project. Charles Holzhey - key production, locations, sets. Andrew Buckles - storyboards, Andy Zadrozny collaborated on music score, Sheri Brown and Alan Sutherland - Butoh artists, Jerry Johnson - props

Natural Possession was modeled after classic monster movies and art house films.
