Fans waiting patiently for Robin Hardy’s semi-sequel to his 1973 classic The Wicker Man, entitled The Wicker Tree won’t have very much longer as the flick has landed itself some Stateside distribution.
The companion piece to the weirdness of the last Wicker film was scooped up by one of horror’s best friends, Anchor Bay Entertainment, who you know will treat it right! Hell, maybe we’ll even get the original on Blu-ray!
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’, who 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.
