When Mike arrives at Nicole's apartment, she puts a record on the phonograph. Mike sits and looks through a magazine as the song plays. When he leaves, the music has stopped and the phonograph is off with the arm on the rest. Nicole comes in a moment later and the turntable is still moving with the arm in the center of the record.

A dark and interesting low budget thriller.
21 October 2003 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

I was really impressed with Michael Reeves' third (and final, he overdosed shortly thereafter, still only in his mid-20s) film 'Witchfinder-General' so I was really curious to see his previous effort 'The Sorcerers'. It was made on a considerable smaller budget, but it has an interesting concept, good acting and is pretty dark in tone. Horror legend Karloff plays an elderly scientist who has invented a technique which enables his wife (Catherine Lacey) and himself to experience the thoughts and emotions of a young man (Reeves regular Ian Ogilvy). Ogilivy doesn't know they are doing this and eventually loses control of his mind and body after there is a battle of wills between the old couple who are vicariously living through him. The three leads all put in strong performances, and there is a cool swinging 60s background which makes this one a real rough diamond. And keep an eye out for an early appearance by 70s sex symbol Susan George ('Straw Dogs', 'Dirty Mary Crazy Larry'). Recommended to all fans of 60s horror.
