Fantasia Review: The Alchemist Cookbook

One of the many wonderful things about covering film festivals is how with every one you attend, you end up discovering new gems. Films which don’t play by the typical Hollywood rules, think outside of the box and offer their viewers fresh and interesting new takes on telling great genre stories. Fantasia is that type of festival and with every year that comes and goes, I tend to walk away excited and rejuvenated, having experienced films that show that if you have an imagination and an enthralling story, then you’ll leave an impression. Past Fantasia films that have left their mark on me, like Nicholas McCarthy’s At The Devil’S Door and Gabriel Carrer’s The Demolisher are films which became instant favorites of mine.

Joining the ranks of those films, is the Joel Potrykus-helmed demonic possession film, The Alchemist Cookbook, a film so imaginative and full of laughs and scares, »
