Picking up where the Fall narrative left off, Eminem’s “Venom” clip loosely borrows from its titular source material. As Em himself said, “I’m the suit,” alluding to his own symbiotic tendencies; such ideas are put into practice throughout, as unsuspecting pedestrians find themselves possessed by Eminem, mirroring his delivery, mannerisms, and aggression. Not only that, but being imbued with Shady’s presence also allows victims to experience moments of supernatural strength.
Like a baton, Em’s Venom-esque reach is passed on contact, leading to a diverse and animated cast of characters. Anybody can get it, from children to the elderly; even dogs are susceptible. With memorable turns from a wide array of committed actors, “Venom” is an enjoyable turn befitting of its comic book source material.
