The Wicker Man: The Final Cut
Director: Robin Hardy.
Starring: Christopher Lee, Edward Woodward. UK 1973. 95 mins.
Police Sergeant Howie (Woodward) receives an anonymous letter from the remote Western Isles asking him to investigate the disappearance of a schoolgirl. Upon his arrival he discovers a secretive community presided over by Christopher Lee's Laird of Summerisle. As the mystery of the missing girl unravels, Howie begins to suspect that she has been the victim of some very dark rituals. This ‘final cut’ of the film is the result of a worldwide search for the legendary lost footage that was launched to mark its 40th anniversary, and includes newly discovered material that had been missing for decades. Established Wicker buffs will relish the chance to finally see the cut that Hardy describes as fulfilling his original vision, while newcomers are in for a deliciously creepy and shocking treat.
