SORCERER

This tense thriller starring Roy Scheider (Jaws, The French Connection) 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?

Now, 40 years since its release, SORCERER is regarded by critics and filmmakers alike as a true lost cinematic masterpiece – a triumphant feat of filmmaking that encapsulates the revolutionary artistry of 1970s American cinema and not to be missed.

Blu-Ray Special Features:

o Sorcerers – A Conversation with William Friedkin and Nicolas Winding Refn (74mins)

o The Mystery of Fate – A letter from director William Friedkin

o Newly commissioned artwork to celebrate the 40th Anniversary

o Reversible sleeve using newly commissioned and original theatrical artwork

Win a copy of CARNIVAL OF SOULS and THE LURE from the Criterion Collection

Two new titles from The Criterion Collection are coming to the UK this month and we have a copy of each - Carnival of Souls and The Lure - to give away to one lucky winner.

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.

CARNIVAL OF SOULS

A young woman in a small Kansas town survives a drag race accident, then agrees to take a job as church organist in Salt Lake City. En route, she becomes haunted by a bizarre apparition that compels her toward an abandoned lakeside pavilion. Made by industrial filmmakers on a modest budget, the eerily effective B-movie classic Carnival of Souls was intended to have “the look of a Bergman and the feel of a Cocteau”—and, with its strikingly used locations and spooky organ score, it succeeds. Herk Harvey’s macabre masterpiece gained a cult following through late-night television and continues to inspire filmmakers today.

SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES
• New, restored 4K digital transfer, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
• Selected-scene audio commentary featuring director Herk Harvey and
screenwriter John Clifford
• New interview with comedian and writer Dana Gould
• New video essay by film critic David Cairns
• The Movie That Wouldn’t Die!, a documentary on the 1989 reunion of the film’s cast and crew
• The Carnival Tour, a 2000 update on the film’s locations
• Excerpts from movies made by the Centron Corporation, an industrial film company based in Lawrence, Kansas, that once employed Harvey and Clifford

• Deleted scenes

• Outtakes, accompanied by Gene Moore’s organ score
• History of the Saltair Resort in Salt Lake City, where key scenes in the film were shot

• Trailer

• More!
• PLUS: An essay by writer and programmer Kier-La Janisse

THE LURE

This genre-defying horror-musical mash-up—the bold debut of Polish director AGNIESZKA SMOCZYNSKA— follows a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters drawn ashore to explore life on land in an alternate 1980s Poland. Their tantalizing siren songs and otherworldly auras make them overnight sensations as nightclub singers in the half-glam, half-decrepit world of Smoczynska’s imagining. The director gives fierce teeth to her viscerally sensual, darkly feminist twist on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” in which the girls’ bond is tested and their survival threatened after one sister falls for a human. A coming-of-age fairy tale with a catchy synth-fueled soundtrack, outrageous song-and-dance numbers, and lavishly grimy sets, The Lure explores its themes of emerging female sexuality, exploitation, and the compromises of adulthood with savage energy and originality.

· DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES
• High-definition digital master, supervised by director of photography Kuba Kijowski, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack
• New programme about the making of the film, featuring interviews with director Agnieszka Smoczynska, actors Marta Mazurek and Michalina Olszanska, screenwriter Robert Bolesto, Kijowski, composers Barbara and Zuzanna Wronski, sound designer Marcin Lenarczyk, and choreographer Kaya Kołodziejczyk
• Deleted scenes
• Aria Diva (2007) and Viva Maria! (2010), two short films directed by Smoczynska
• New English subtitle translation
• PLUS: An essay by writer Angela Lovell
