The Wicker Man: Final Cut

SUPPORT

Go pagan for the night and see the original 1973 “folk horror” cult classic that inspired the new film Midsommar at this special big screen presentation of the restored, director-approved “Final Cut” of The Wicker Man!
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 ’70s thriller of pagan worshippers running amuck on a remote Scottish island. Seen for decades only in mutilated copies, this restored 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 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 lord of the isle Christopher Lee and his devoted followers worship only the pagan gods of old – and those gods demand a sacrifice! Attempting to chase down clues, Howie catches on to the pagan culture that prevails – couples have sex publicly, and children learn about phallic symbols – all things that deeply offend the devoutly Christian Howie. Those acts seem relatively innocent once a series of photographs brings him to the conclusion that children are being sacrificed for the island’s harvest. Woodward fears for the missing girl’s life and follows every possible lead to find her – despite the islanders’ 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)
