    Awesome. I hope they maintained some of the old grain and saturation, though. If any movie benefits from that rough around the edges 70s style, it’s The Wicker Man.

    It’s a shame that even the Final Cut has some of Willow’s Song cut out. The cuts are obvious. I’ve actually spliced the version from the Extended edition into the Final Cut on my own edit.

    Side note: Being in 4K is going to make the body suits of the “naked” women dancing around the fire even more noticeable.

    Man this was one of the first movies I saw where the ending was brutal and I was torn apart whether to like it or not. I liked it.

    I watched the nic cage version of this not knowing anything about it. Was fucking mental. I’ll never forget it

    My grandad helped build The Wicker Man, next time I see him I’ll have to get some of his photos to scan in to post online.

    Edit: I commented this on my lunch break at work and didn’t expect such a response. My grandad both lives quite far away from me and is tech illiterate given he’s nearly 90 but I’ll see what I can do

    I’ve already got tickets to a screening of this, which is being show as a double bill with Hammer Studio’s The Witches, for double the folk horror goodness.

    ‘Animals are fine, but their acceptability is limited. A little child is even better, but not *nearly* as effective as the *right* kind of adult.’

    “I think I could turn and live with animals. They are so placid and self-contained. They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins. They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God. Not one of them kneels to another or to his own kind that lived thousands of years ago. Not one of them is respectable or unhappy, all over the earth.”

    Sad how people know the awful nic cage movie and not this. I would put it comfortably in my top 5 British horror films. Maybe the best.

    Whenever I think about the Wicker Man I always remember this video of Christopher Lee talking about how much of the film was cut. This video was taken 20 years ago though, so I don’t know how much of the missing footage he’s talking about has actually resurfaced now.

    This is the scariest movie I’ve ever seen, for one simple reason.

    They knew.

    Every curious stare.

    Every polite wave.

    Every naive smile.

    *They all knew.*
