The Sorcerers ★★★½

Watching old British horror movies with my Dad is something I always enjoy doing. It was certainly a good way to spend the evening on New Years Day.

The Sorcerers is a unique pre-slasher oddity. It's about mind control, perhaps tying into the swinging 60s vibe of youth and drugs. It has a psycho old woman wanting to relive youthful desires and that's quite interesting. Michael Reeves, who died tragically young, was clearly a talented director. There's some tense set pieces and a gloriously hallucinatory mind control sequence. That said, The Sorcerers is a little rough around the edges and some stylish moments come across as cheap. It's a strange little horror film but rather endearing.
