The Wicker Man (The Final Cut)
Director Robin Hardy
Starring Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland, Diane Cilento
A devout Christian policeman investigates the disappearance of a girl
from a remote Scottish island community, which turns into an eerie
confrontation of religions in this classic and intelligent folk horror, with a
screenplay by Anthony Shaffer. The film has great performances
throughout but especially notable are Christopher Lee and Edward
Woodward as the two main protagonists.
The creation, loss and rediscovery of both the film and its soundtrack is
as fascinating as the film itself, which will be shared in a special
introduction before the screening, by Mike Graham.
“This version… is the film as we originally intended it” – Robin Hardy (Director)

The Lord is My Shepherd Too.
Poor Howie, poor pigs, crackling anyone?
What a pleasure to hear a 1973 soundtrack, where the actors spoke in well articulated English with minimal background noise. I heard every word – unlike First Man.
A sublime British horror film, quirky and distinctive.
Much better than I remembered.
Ironically Gary was almost inaudible.
