SYNOPSIS

Poison is the second feature directed by Todd Haynes, the
Oscar®-nominated filmmaker of Far from Heaven and Carol.
It is a groundbreaking American Indie and a trailblazing
landmark of queer cinema. A work of immense visual
invention, Haynes’ spectacular follow-up to his legendary
Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story is audacious, disturbing
and thrillingly cinematic.
Inspired by the writings of Jean Genet, Poison deftly
interweaves a trio of transgressive tales—“Hero,” “Horror”
and “Homo”—that build toward a devastating climax. “Hero,”
shot in mock TV-documentary style, tells a bizarre story of
suburban patricide and a miraculous flight from justice;
“Horror,” filmed like a delirious ’50s B-movie melodrama,
is a gothic tale of a mad sex experiment which unleashes
a disfiguring plague; while “Homo” explores the obsessive
sexual relationship between two prison inmates.
A runaway hit which made national headlines when it was
attacked by right-wing politicians, Poison is unsettling,
unforgettable and thoroughly entertaining.
