The Wicker Man

The Wicker Man

Directed by Robin Hardy

Naive officer Sargeant Howie is sent to Summerisle, a secluded island off the coast of Scotland, to investigate the disappearance of a young girl named Rowan in this horror essential. When he arrives there, he finds a very tight-knit community that is mistrustful and hostile to outsiders. Soon, Howie begins to realize that the town might be a strange pagan cult, one given to unbridled sexuality and possible human sacrifice. An all-time classic, with standout performances from Woodward and the legendary Christopher Lee, THE WICKER MAN is a high point in the still lively folk horror subgenre; its influence living on in the likes of KILL LIST, DARKLANDS and more.

A police sergeant travels to a remote Scottish island and its pagan community, in search of a missing girl.

Cast: Edward Woodward, Diane Cilento, Britt Ekland, Christopher Lee ​

The remake was so much better and made way more sense. Nicholas cage did a better job. Not horrible for an original but if you’re going to watch one that makes more sense, then watch that one.
