The Wicker Man: The Final Cut to Burn onto DVD and Blu-rayGather around the Maypole, brandish your phallic symbols, and get ready to masturbate silently while pounding on the wall, kids! The Wicker Man: The Final Cut is officially on its way to domestic home video, and we have the skinny on what to expect once it gets here!

From the Press Release
Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the cult classic that Cinefantastique called “the Citizen Kane of horror films” when The Wicker Man arrives on Blu-ray Disc for the first time January 7, 2014, from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The Wicker Man will also be available on Digital HD, Video on Demand, and Pay-Per-View.

Featuring an all-new, restored edition of director Robin Hardy’s final cut, this spectacular Blu-ray also features brand new bonus content including a restoration comparison, an interview with Robin Hardy, and two informative featurettes. Winner of the Saturn Award for Best Horror Film, The Wicker Man has been described as “a movie that’ll burn its way into your unconscious and give you nightmares for years” (BBC). Arriving in a collectible package with brand new artwork, the Blu-ray will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.99.

When a young girl mysteriously vanishes, Police Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) travels to a remote Scottish island to investigate. But the seemingly quiet community is not as it appears, as the detective uncovers a secretive pagan society led by the strange Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee). While the townsfolk tempt and threaten him with bizarre rituals and wanton lust, Howie must race to discover the truth behind the girl’s disappearance before his clash with Lord Summerisle builds to a terrifying conclusion – one that has cemented this cult shocker as a modern horror masterpiece.

Synopsis

  • Interview with director Robin Hardy

      I hear it’s actually missing some footage. Final my ass. Here’s hoping that footage is found and restored.
