The movie stars Reece Sheersmith, best known for The League of Gentlemen, as the alchemist Whitehead, who runs into some civil war deserters, ends up eating magic mushrooms, and submitting to the evil hold of the charismatic, enigmatic O’Neill (Michael Smiley). Listen for more, in a spoiler-free review.
