Oscilloscope Labs has released the official trailer for the indie film The Alchemist Cookbook, from director Joel Potrykus. The film will be available worldwide for pay-what-you-wish via BitTorrent Now on October 7, before it screens in select theaters across the country.
The Alchemist Cookbook which premiered earlier this year at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival stars Ty Hickson, and Amari Cheatom.
In the film, young outcast Sean has isolated himself in a trailer in the woods, setting out on alchemic pursuits, with his cat Kaspar as his sole companion. Filled with disdain for authority, he’s fled the daily grind and holed up in the wilderness, escaping a society that has no place for him. But when he turns from chemistry to black magic to crack nature’s secret, things go awry and he awakens something far more sinister and dangerous.
