Next best is £7.99 at Play. Includes 2 DVDs (including both the Theatrical Cut and Director's Cut) and the original soundtrack CD.

Since its release in 1973, The Wicker Man has held an enduring fascination for audiences, commanding a devotion that most films can only dream of. A unique and bona fide horror masterpiece, the film can now be seen in its original theatrical version and Director's Cut including 15 minutes of footage that was thought lost for decades!

When a young girl mysteriously disappears, Police Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) travels to a remote Scottish island to investigate. But this pastoral community, led by the strange Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee) is not what it seems as the devoutly religious detective soon uncovers a secret society of wanton lust and pagan blasphemy.

Brilliantly scripted by Anthony Shaffer (Sleuth, Frenzy) and featuring an astounding performance by the legendary Christopher Lee, director Robin Hardy's atmospheric use of location, unsettling imagery and haunting soundtrack gradually builds to one of the most terrifying and iconic climaxes in modern cinema.

Refuse to watch that version, don't want to taint my admiration for the classic original, same with the remake of "The Haunting"" refuse to watch that too!

Dubbed and body doubled! And if anyone likes that tune playing when she is dancing around nekkid, the band Sneaker Pimps did a corking cover version of it on their album "Becoming "X" entitled "How Do"

Brilliant film.

I have visited most of the locations, and they are within a two hour drive from Glasgow or the north or England (with the exception of Plockton, which is the harbour were his seaplane lands which is close to the Skye bridge on the coast in the highlands).

A site that offers excellent detail on these locations is...

The palm trees in the film are all real - and grow in Scotland with the help of the gulf stream bringing warm water up from the Amazon. However, due to financial difficulties the film was shot far later in the year than was intended, resulting on the cherry blossom on the trees being false and individually stuck on.

There was a gorgeous free MP3 of an instrumental Flute version of Willow's Song on [url]www.silvascreen.co.uk[/url] but alas I think that website is no longer about!
