The Final Programme (1973) Blu-ray: Michael Moorcock sci-fi

Shout Factory is releasing this fascinating and underrated 70s cult sci-fi thriller from a Michael Moorcock novel, The Final Programme (1973), on Blu-ray. Directed by Robert Fuest.

As the world teeters on the brink of nuclear anarchy, London-based scientific genius Jerry Cornelius (Jon Finch, The Horror Of Frankenstein, Frenzy) discovers that the microfilm formula for a self-replicating human being is missing. With the help of beautiful computer expert Miss Brunner (Jenny Runacre, The Witches), Cornelius must race through a wasteland of murder and madness to recover “The Final Programme,” which may very well trigger the creation of a new messiah!

Released in the U.S. by Roger Corman’s New World Pictures under the title The Last Days Of Man On Earth, this bizarre blend of action, sci-fi and dark satire co-stars Patrick Magee (A Clockwork Orange), Sterling Hayden (The Godfather) and Sarah Douglas (Superman II).
