Apprentice to Murder (1988) – Arrow Video Blu-ray

Arrow Video (USA) is releasing Apprentice to Murder (1988) to a 2K restoration Blu-ray. Starring Donald Sutherland, Chad Lowe, and Mia Sara.

In early twentieth-century Pennsylvania Dutch Country, young Billy Kelly (Chad Lowe) falls in with a charismatic “powwower” or folk magic healer, Dr. John Reese (Donald Sutherland, Don’t Look Now), shunned by the rest of the community for his non-conformist beliefs.

Together, they investigate the mysterious sickness that is blighting the area, which Reese believes to be the work of a sinister local hermit. But as the plague spreads and the wide-eyed Billy falls ever deeper under Reese’s spell, are they doing God’s work or the Devil’s bidding?
