Directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead from a script by Benson, Synchronic revolves around the eponymous designer drug that inadvertently allows certain users to travel back to specific moments in time based on their location. But Synchronic also comes with harmful side effects, resulting in two New Orleans paramedics (Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan) responding to an increase in unexplainable drug-related calls. When Dornan’s teenage daughter goes missing, Mackie begins to suspect that her disappearance may be tied to her use of Synchronic. Synchronic, which premiered locally during the 2019 Fantastic Fest, is now available on Blu-Ray and for digital/VOD viewing. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead previously directed Resolution, Spring, The Endless, and the Bonestorm segment of V/H/S Viral. Marvel Studios announced in January that Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead would direct episodes of the upcoming DisneyPlus series Moon Knight. In addition to producing Benson and Moorehead's films, David Lawson Jr. also produced 68 Kill, After Midnight, and She Dies Tomorrow.
