Set in New Orleans, Anthony Mackie’s new film, Synchronic, tells the story of longtime best friends Steve (Mackie) and Dennis (Jamie Dornan), both paramedics. They can only watch as a strange new party drug seems to lead to several instances of bizarre, gruesome accidents. Confused, they mostly seem to brush it off. That is, until Dennis’s oldest daughter suddenly disappears and Steve finds himself digging deeper into the terrifying truth about the supposed psychedelic.
The trailer promises plenty of hallucinations and trippy imagery with a good dose of sci-fi for good measure. The film is directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead and also stars Katie Aselton and Ally Ioannides.
Just in time for spooky season, Synchronic debuts in theaters and drive-ins on October 23.
