Actor Barak Hardley is embarking on a soul-searching journey in the new dark comedy, ‘Spell.’ In honor of the performer’s protagonist, Benny, trying to determine what’s real and what’s just in his head during his life-altering adventure, the official green band theatrical trailer for the movie has been released by Dark Star Pictures.

The distributor is set to unveil the thriller in select theaters on November 1, and then on VOD nationwide on November 19. The surreal feature’s official release comes after it had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival, where it won the award for Best Ensemble Cast. In addition to Hardley, ‘Spell’ also stars Jackie Tohn, Magnus Jonsson and Birna Rún Eiríksdóttir.

The dark comedy was written by Barak Hardley, and marks the feature directorial debut of Brendan Walter, who also served as a producer, and contributed to the story. The movie features a new original song from Weezer, and a cameo from the band’s frontman, Rivers Cuomo. (The film collaboration comes after Weezer previously worked with Walter on two of their music videos.) ‘Spell’s score was crafted by Fall Out Boy singer, Patrick Stump.

Dark Star Pictures has released the following synopsis for ‘Spell’:

Following the unexpected death of his fiancee, Benny, an American illustrator, embarks on a soul-searching journey across the isolated Icelandic countryside. Once there, he becomes drawn into a supernatural world of ancient runes and secrets – unless it’s all in his head.
