About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: While "The Alchemist Cookbook" certainly won't be for everyone, it will surely delight and surprise those who can grok its idiosyncratic content. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jul 6, 2016

Rotten: The movie peaks at its midpoint with a chilling nocturnal encounter that blurs the line between hallucination and the genuinely supernatural; the rest of the movie pivots around it, but slowly. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Nov 3, 2016

Fresh: A chapter-driven series of sketchy scenes powered by a striking, manic performance by lead actor Ty Hickson. – Tom Keogh, Seattle Times, Nov 1, 2016

Fresh: Whatever The Alchemist Cookbook has to express, it expresses through scenes that feel as though someone were dared to do something while a camera rolled, in the near-extinct tradition of the transgressive underground movie. – Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club, Oct 5, 2016
