The Sorcerers

Boris Karloff gets hooked on a feeling.


Horror

Rod Lott
Boris Karloff plays one of The Sorcerers in an obscure 1967 thriller from Warner Archive. To be more precise, he’s Dr. Marcus Monserrat, “practitioner of medical hypnosis.” Yet what he and his wife (Catherine Lacey, The Lady Vanishes) really itch to try out is something more sinister.

Targets

A dead-on classic.


Thriller

Rod Lott

Inspired by the dirty doings of mass murderer Charles Whitman, 1968's once-controversial Targets is the first true film directed by Peter Bogdanovich and also — I think, despite Oscar love for his '70s work — his best. It's also one of Warner Archive's finest rescues from out-of-print oblivion yet.

Die, Monster, Die!

Buy, viewer, buy!


Horror

Rod Lott

In Die, Monster, Die!, a decent H.P. Lovecraft adaptation from 1965, the repellent Reinhart (Nick Adams, Frankenstein Conquers the World) visits the secluded mansion of wacky, wheelchair-bound Witley (Boris Karloff, Targets), who has discovered something quite peculiar residing in his basement.
