The Wicker Man

The Wicker Man was lensed entirely on location in Scotland and is possessed of a weird and paganistic story. Anthony Shaffer penned the screenplay which, for sheer imagination and near-terror, has seldom been equalled.

Edward Woodward Britt Ekland Diane Cilento Ingrid Pitt Christopher Lee Roy Boyd

The Wicker Man was lensed entirely on location in Scotland and is possessed of a weird and paganistic story. Anthony Shaffer penned the screenplay which, for sheer imagination and near-terror, has seldom been equalled.

Frightening aspects build one upon the other as a Scottish police sergeant arrives on a little offshore island to investigate the disappearance of a young girl. He finds, under the regime of an all-powerful, benevolent and suave despot, a sinister situation dating back to the days of pagan practices and fertility rites.

Edward Woodward plays role of the sergeant who arrives to find a conspiracy of silence and is forced into a fatal part in the paganistic rituals. Christopher Lee is the cultured feudal Lord Summerisle, lord of the island. Both score in their roles.
