DVD & Blu-ray review: The Wicker Man: The Final Cut (40th Anniversary Edition) (15)
Robin Hardy Blu-ray (84 mins)
Friday 18 October 2013
“Fair maid, white and red, comb you smooth and stroke your head; how a maid can milk a bull, and every stroke a bucketful!“ The degenerate islanders just can't stop singing, and Edward Woodward's prim, devout copper is rightly perturbed. He's searching for a missing 12-year-old girl, but the inhabitants of this ”heathen“ Scottish island (all seemingly part of an oversexed pagan cult run by wild-haired Christopher Lee) deny ever knowing her. A mother inserts a frog in her daughter's mouth, there are orgies in the graveyard, and much worse in Robin Hardy's powerfully unsettling 1973 masterpiece.
