The Hexer (Polish: Wiedźmin) is the international title of both a ταινία (2001) and a τηλεοπτική σειρά (2002) based on the witcher short stories by Andrzej Sapkowski, although it more commonly referred to as The Witcher by fans since the release of The Witcher παιχνίδι για υπολογιστή. Both the ταινία and the τηλεοπτική σειρά were directed by Marek Brodzki, written by Michał Szczerbic, and produced by Lew Rywin. The role of Geralt was played by Michał Żebrowski, and the music was composed by Grzegorz Ciechowski.

The theatrical ταινία was essentially the then-unreleased τηλεοπτική σειρά chopped into about 2 hours, and received very poor reviews from both fans and critics. The 13-episode τηλεοπτική σειρά came out the following year. The τηλεοπτική σειρά was much more coherent than the confusing ταινία, but was still considered a failure mostly due to the film's already bad reputation and due to vast changes to the source material.
