Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan star in the mind and time-bending sci-fi pic Synchronic, which comes from Spring, The Endless and Resolution filmmakers Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead.
The film follows New Orleans paramedics and longtime best friends Steve (Mackie) and Dennis (Dornan), who believe a mysterious new party drug is behind a series of bizarre, gruesome accidents they find. After Dennis’s oldest daughter suddenly disappears, however, Steve uncovers terrifying truth about this supposed psychedelic – one challenging everything he knows about reality… and time.
If you’re yet to see those aforementioned films from Benson and Moorhead, do yourself a favour and check them out. Despite the occasional clarity of budgetary restrictions, their previous films are brimming with fascinating ideas that get the head spinning – Resolution and The Endless are particularly trippy journeys, and should be watched in that order, by the way. Looking forward to seeing what they have in store with Synchronic, which could get them a much bigger spotlight thanks to its more well-known leads.
Synchronic will be hitting select US cinemas on October 23rd.
