A police sergeant investigates the disappearance of a young girl. His hunt takes him to a remote Scottish island, but the people there claim no knowledge of the girl. As he digs deeper, he finds a strange brand of druidism prospering. Ranks among the best British horror films. Originally filmed at 102 minutes, the first release was pruned to 87 minutes. Not until 2001 was a full version relocated.

Awesome Awesome Awesome.

Terrific original movie, The Wicker Man is put under the horror movie genre but i cant see any horror in it. now regarded as a cult movie, the wicker man appeals to both young (18 and over of course) and old viewers. Well scripted, produced and directed. And with an awsome soundtrack by the late Paul Giovanni. Let the Wicker Man into your world, and become part of summerisle forever.
