Critic Reviews for The Alchemist Cookbook
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.
A chapter-driven series of sketchy scenes powered by a striking, manic performance by lead actor Ty Hickson.
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.
While "The Alchemist Cookbook" certainly won't be for everyone, it will surely delight and surprise those who can grok its idiosyncratic content.
Hickson's largely silent performance is superb (in the kind of complex role not typically given to black actors in modern horror movies), never overselling his creeping madness.
