The Alchemist, intriguing, but with not much go
13 April 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This 80's horror is great, if you really wanna see some beautiful glass making, great f.x. and some heavy gore. Otherwise, there's not much else, in this B grade offering. Ginty, is great, as a guy, who's lover was taking by the devil. When trying to knife him, he mistakenly knives her. He's cursed for a hundred years, to live in pain and suffering, never aging. He lives with his daughter, I'm pretty sure, who's aged normally, now in her eighties. A girl, (Lucinda Dooling) obviously the same actress as Ginty's taken lover, who for Ginty, is freakishly familiar, keeps seeing horrifying visions, of this devil like creature, while cruising through the country. She has a pick up, Cam Rollins, (John Sanderford) who soon wished he wasn't, as he senses some strange behavior in this girl, as well as her, flashing out, creating danger behind the wheel. This soon has him suggesting she should go see a shrink while obviously being attracted to her, also. When they go off the road, into the woods, at her opting, something drawing her there, the two are soon acquainted with Ginty and company. Ginty, soon scraping the underneath as to Dooling's part in this, tells her those flashes of those events were real, where it's time for her to confront her demons so to speak, and put revenge Ginty at peace, as the gates of hell are about to open once more, the devil after Dooling. The Alchemist, it's movie cover, engaging, is really a facade, where this intriguing B grade flick, doesn't gather much interest, in 'movie happening land' especially in it's slow start, although I must admit the scenery was nice. It's worth really lies in Ginty's compelling performance.
