The Wicker Man
Sunday, Dec 31 at 3:00 pm
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Robin Hardy. 1973, 87 mins. DCP. With Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland, Diane Cilento, Ingrid Pitt. Police sergeant Neil Howie (Woodward) arrives at a seemingly quiet island village in search of a missing young woman whom the locals claim never existed. Stranger still are the rituals performed by the locals who long abandoned Christianity. The more Sergeant Howie learns about these practices, the closer he thinks he gets to solving his case, although he is really being gradually ensnared in a nefarious plot. Fifty years after its release, The Wicker Man remains imaginative and frightening, and a seminal work of folk horror.
