The Sorcerers



TITLE: The Sorcerers

YEAR RELEASED: 1967

DIRECTOR: Michael Reeves

CAST: Boris Karloff, Catherine Lacey, Elizabeth Ercy and Ian Ogilvy

MINI-REVIEW BY STEPHEN JACOBS: “This film is almost a return to Karloff’s ‘mad doctor’ series for Columbia almost three decades years earlier. Karloff plays Professor Marcus Monserrat, a scientist who has developed a hypnosis machine. Intending to use his invention for the benefit of the old and infirm, who will be able to experience the subject’s sensations ‘by proxy’, the experiment is instead it is subverted by Monserrat’s wife [Catherine Lacey] who influences the subject [Ian Ogilvy] to steal and, eventually, commit murder.”
