An anonymous letter has been received. It speaks of a little girl who has disappeared on the island, in the countryside of old, where pagan villagers worship gods, and those gods demand a sacrifice. On this island, no one can save you—not even your God.
Nothing is as it seems in this masterful confection of creeping folk horror perfection which has gone on to shock audiences for over 40 years and inspire an infamous remake. Forget “the bees”—watch the original. With Edward Woodward, Britt Ekland, and Christopher Lee.
Note for WICKER MAN obsessives: we are screening the Robin Hardy-blessed 94 minute “Final Cut” of the film.
