Finally fans who are eagerly anticipating the official follow-up film to Robin Hardy’s classic The Wicker Man, entitled The Wicker Tree, have a place to go online and worship!
That’s right, kids! Quicker than you can chant “PHALLIC SYMBOL”, you can now visit the official The Wicker Tree website by clicking on the snazzy image you see below.
The Wicker Tree reunites the director with legendary actor Christopher Lee for a story “in the style of” the 1973 film. Keep in mind this is NOT a direct sequel, but it does explore similar themes.
The plot for the film centers on Beth and Steve, a gospel singer and her cowboy boyfriend, both Christian members of a no-sex-before-marriage pact they call ‘the silver ring thing’, leave Texas to preach door-to-door in Scotland. When, after initial abuse, they are welcomed with joy and elation to Tressock, the border fiefdom of the sinister Lachlan Morrison, they assume their hosts want to simply hear more about Jesus. How innocent and wrong they are.
