Just a couple of weeks ago, we wrote about Dinner With the Alchemist, a period horror drama that takes place in turn-of-the-century New Orleans and focuses on an alchemist and a voodoo priestess. Using information from actual police reports, the film blends historical narrative with fictional storytelling to weave together something special.
To give you an idea of what the movie is all about, we’ve got an exclusive trailer for you to watch below.
In the early 1900s, a wealthy alchemist, Jacques St. Germaine, travels to New Orleans to seek help from the legendary voodoo priestess Marie Laveau. When a spate of murders are uncovered, Jacques and the quarreling locals butt heads as they try to discover the identity of the killer. Featuring a cast of characters pulled from actual police reports, Dinner with the Alchemist weaves historical fact and imaginative storytelling into a mysterious supernatural drama.
Directed by Kevin Good, who co-wrote the film with his wife, producer and star Jenna St. Johns, Dinner With the Alchemist also stars Dan Istrate and Dionne Audain. It hits VOD platforms today.
