Two vehicles lurch across the east African bush, carrying an ill-assorted party of prospectors who have formed a syndicate to search for uranium deposits. The Syndicate (U) is released on DVD on 22nd June 2015, RRP £9.99, as part of Network’s ‘The British Film’ collection.

As their four-week window for digging starts to close, trouble soon starts amongst the group and there are some sinister ‘accidents’. It is obvious that one of the party is trying to sabotage the expedition; but who?

American-born actor William Sylvester (best known for his role in 2001: A Space Odyssey) features alongside June Ritchie (A Kind Of Loving, The Mouse On The Moon) and Plane Makers star Robert Urquhart in this gripping 2960s thriller filmed on location in Kenya.

Special features:

  • Original theatrical trailer
  • Image gallery

The Syndicate is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.


BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
