New 50th anniversary 4K restoration!
Long considered one of the very cult-iest of cult horror films, The Wicker Man: Final Cut is the definitive version of Robin Hardy’s celebrated 1973 thriller of paganists running amuck on a remote Scottish island. Seen for decades only in mutilated copies, this newly restored 50th anniversary version is the culmination of a long search for the complete director’s cut. After receiving an anonymous letter about a missing 12-year-old girl, devoutly Christian cop Neil Howie (Edward Woodward) travels by seaplane to the remote Scottish island of Summerisle to investigate. But the islanders welcome neither his badge nor religious devotion, for laird of the isle Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee) and his devoted followers worship only the pagan gods of old – and those gods demand a sacrifice! Howie fears for the missing girl’s life and follows every possible lead to find her – despite the islanders’ increasingly sinister interference – before she becomes a human sacrificial lamb at the fast-approaching May Day festival, leading to a shocking, and quite “un-festive,” surprise for our straight-laced hero! (Dir. by Robin Harvey, 1973, UK, 93 mins., Rated R)
