A notoriously troubled production notwithstanding, the controversial cult classic THE WICKER MAN is now regarded as a classic of British cinema. Edward Woodward stars as Sergeant Howie, a naive young police officer sent to Summerisle, a secluded island off the coast of Scotland, to investigate the disappearance of a young girl named Rowan. When he arrives there, he finds a very tight-knit community that is mistrustful and hostile to outsiders. No one is willing to even acknowledge Rowan's disappearance. Soon, Howie begins to realize that the town might, in fact, be a strange pagan cult, one given to unbridled sexuality and possible human sacrifice. Seeking an audience with the oddly civilized Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee), Howie hopes to get to the bottom of the mystery, but instead he finds something more shocking than he could have ever imagined. Written by Anthony Shaffer (SLEUTH, DEATH ON THE NILE), Robin Hardy's eerie film paints a disturbing portrait of an almost prehistoric, multi-deity worshipping society given to bizarre rituals and Bacchanalian excess. Though recognition may have been a long time coming, THE WICKER MAN stands as a strikingly original achievement that is equal parts horror, drama, comedy, and musical

I agree! :thumbsup:

The original is excellent and a bargain at this price!

Spoilerific, and I don't recommend you look if you haven't seen the original, but this clip gives you an idea of the brilliance that is the remake starring Nicholas Cage if you are lucky enough not to sit through it: ]Not the bees....

Great deal on a fantastic film. Still find it creepy :thumbsup:

I'm a big Wicker Man fan I recently found out that a local cinema is showing a double-bill of WM & Don't Look Now at Halloween. Fellow WM geeks may see the logical link in this!

Nic Cage in the remake "step away from the bike" with big gun aimed at a nun. Comedy classic.

Utter sh**e.

Original is a great film.

Just to mention, the extended versions extra scenes are sometimes of a lower quality (look like VHS) - seems they were unable to find good quality master film to restore them from.
