Sorcerer is the 1977 movie nobody saw. After its theatrical run, I remember seeing the previews on HBO. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I actually got to see it (on VHS and later DVD). It has a scary title, but isn’t scary or about a sorcerer.
Many point to the film’s commercial failure as a result of the movie being released a month after Star Wars. It’s notable for its electronic score by Tangerine Dream, which was the group’s first Hollywood film score and led to their becoming popular soundtrack composers of the ’80s.
Here is a slice of the Tangerine Dream soundtrack with clips from the movie.
