The Wicker Man: The Final Cut

17 October
Location informationArc Cinema
Event cost$12/$10

Generally regarded as one of the best British films ever made, the 1973 folk horror film centres on a visit by Police Sergeant Neil Howie (Edward Woodward) to the island of Summerisle, in search of a missing girl. 

Howie discovers that the inhabitants of the island are dedicated practitioners of Celtic paganism – placing toads in their mouths to cure sore throats and engaging in frivolous sexual displays and strange pagan rituals. 

Howie is disturbed by their behaviours and beliefs, and soon finds the islanders attempting to thwart his investigation. But the more Sergeant Howie learns about the islanders’ strange practices, the closer he gets to tracking down the missing child...

‘Besides being a great horror film, The Wicker Man is a marvellous time capsule of the 1970s’ - The Arts STL
