The filmmakers behind RESOLUTION, SPRING and THE ENDLESS have another strange trip to take you on.

Well Go USA has issued the trailer and poster for SYNCHRONIC, directed by Justin Benson (who also scripted) and Aaron Moorhead, which hits theaters and drive-ins October 23. Anthony Mackie, Jamie Dornan, Katie Aselton (SHE DIES TOMORROW), Ally Ioannides and Bill Oberst Jr. star; the synopsis: “When New Orleans paramedics and longtime best friends Steve [Mackie] and Dennis [Dornan] are called to a series of bizarre, gruesome accidents, they chalk it up to the mysterious new party drug found at the scene. But after Dennis’ oldest daughter suddenly disappears, Steve stumbles upon a terrifying truth about the supposed psychedelic that will challenge everything he knows about reality–and the flow of time itself.” Check out our review of SYNCHRONIC, and see a note from the filmmakers about the release here.
