The favourite film of horror maestro Stephen King, William Friedkin’s forgotten 1977 masterpiece, SORCERER, will now be released back into cinemas and on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK on 3rd November (theatrical) and 6th November (home entertainment) respectively.
Starring Roy Scheider (Jaws, The French Connection) in the central role, Friedkin‘s tense existential thriller – adapted from the same source novel as Henri-Georges Clouzot’s The Wages of Fear – is a brutal exploration of fate and destiny.
Exiled from their home nations, four strangers, from separate corners of the earth agree to undertake a dangerous mission to transport unstable dynamite through the hot, dense jungle of South America in order to earn their passage home.
When the slightest bump in the road could equal instant death, the real question is not whether these men will survive this nerve-shredding ordeal but who will they have become if they return at all?
