The Alchemist Cookbook Trailer

"Feeling down?" Oscilloscope Labs has debuted the first quick teaser trailer for an indie film called The Alchemist Cookbook, from unique filmmaker Joel Potrykus, who last made the cult indie hit Buzzard starring Joshua Burge. This film is about a young outcast named Sean, played by Ty Hickson, who is holed up in a trailer in the woods with "The Alchemist Cookbook" and his cat. After going too far with one of the recipes, he "awakens something far more sinister and dangerous". The poster gives you a little hint at what that might be since this teaser doesn't offer much to work with. If you're curious about this one, have a look.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Joel Potrykus' The Alchemist Cookbook, found on YouTube (via TFS):

The Alchemist Cookbook Poster

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. The Alchemist Cookbook is both written & directed by American filmmaker Joel Potrykus, of the films Buzzard and Ape previously as well as a number of shorts. This first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. Oscilloscope will open The Alchemist Cookbook this fall, but no date has been set.

So, he got high. Big deal, I feel high all the time and I don't even remember if I ever tried something to feel that way ...

Well, I never liked something like alcohol or marijuana (not that I didn't try any) since I never really felt need for it. But I do get you and understand that I might sound arrogant or something. Not really my intention, believe me. A lot of cool friends around here; they like you are not sharing my views but we all are sharing good time together nevertheless ... Cheers kid ...

Looks cool. It will at least give some young punks a wider audience for their music.

I remember a floppy disc of a similar name being passed around the Amiga sharing scene many moons ago, never did get around to making that Thermite 🙂
