    Comments about Sorcerers, The:

    Very happy to have SORCERERS in a good transfer, superior to the Region 2 PAL DVD I had to make do with prior to this release. Boris Karloff and Catherine Lacey give chilling performances as a pair of old stage magicians who have invented a perfect hypnotic device that also allow them to experience all sensations of the hypnotized. Superbly creepy and unnerving both as a genre cinema and as a philosophical reflection on the theme of the resentful old manipulating the young, with no-nonsense direction by the tragically short-lived Michael Reeves. Even though WITCHFINDER GENERAL is usually considered his masterpiece, SORCERERS, I believe, is a superior horror film. Highly recommended.

      Comments about Sorcerers, The:

      Good, non-campy peformance by Boris Karloff toward the end of his estimable career. Director Michael Reeves later helmed Vincent Price in WITCHFINDER GENERAL. Reeves was a young director who drew restrained performances from aging horror legends.

      The film is set in the world of swinging London in the late 1960's, and includes some typical fashions and "mod" music from the period.

      The transfer is quite superior to the very old Allied Artists VHS release. The color is considerably improved, and the MOD shows a couple of murders that had been censored from the VHS version.
