India, 1825: The country is being ravaged by the Thugees, cult members also known as the “Deceivers,” who commit robbery and ritualistic murder. Appalled by their activities, an English officer, Captain William Savage, undertakes a hazardous task. In disguise, he will himself become a “Deceiver” and infiltrate their ranks. Ever-present in Savage’s adventures is a terrible sense of fear; he is at constant risk of betrayal and vengeance, and undergoes a disturbing psychological transformation as he experiences the cult’s bloodlust at first hand. Starring Pierce Brosnan as the heroic Captain Savage, and stunningly photographed by Walter Lassally, The Deceivers is an exotic, gripping adventure yarn, reportedly based on a true story, that charts one man’s daring exploits to expose a murderous secret society.
