A group of outcasts from different backgrounds/nationalities are forced by misfortune to work in a remote oil drilling operation in South America. When a fire breaks out of control, four of the outcasts are given the opportunity to earn enough money to get out by transporting six crates of unstable dynamite through miles of jungle in two ancient trucks. Will they succeed and regain their honor and citizenship, or get blown up for their efforts?

A remake of Henri-Georges Clouzot's WAGES OF FEAR, this is the rare remake that actually improves on an already perfect film. After languishing for years in legal limbo, this overlooked masterpiece from director William Friedkin (THE EXORCIST, THE FRENCH CONNECTION) returns to the big screen in a glorious restoration personally supervised by the man himself. The brilliant score from the geniuses of Tangerine Dream has also been remastered from the original 4-track stereo masters.

“The new restoration makes the film appear as if it was just made,” said Friedkin. “None of the essentials -- the clothes, the hair -- are dated in any way. It looks the way it looked to me when I looked through the lens of the camera. I have a great fondness for SORCERER, more than any other film I've made… [it] is the one I hope to be remembered for and the one film that came closest to my vision."
