The Wicker Man Steelbook Unboxing

Robin Hardy’s iconic 1973 chiller The Wicker Man has made its long-awaited debut on the 4K UHD format, and the results are utterly glorious. Available as a deluxe 5-disc Collector’s Edition set and this 4-disc Steelbook, StudioCanal have outdone themselves with these stunning releases.

We took a closer look at the Steelbook…

THE WICKER MAN has had an enduring fascination for audiences since its release in 1973. A unique and bone-fide horror masterpiece, brilliantly scripted by Anthony Schaffer (Sleuth, Frenzy) and featuring an astounding performance by the legendary Christopher Lee. Director Robin Hardy’s atmospheric use of location, unsettling imagery and haunting soundtrack gradually builds to one of the most terrifying and iconic climaxes in modern cinema.

When a young girl mysteriously disappears, Police Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) travels to a remote Scottish island to investigate. But this pastoral community , led by the strange Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee) is not what it seems as the devoutly religious detective soon uncovers a secret society of wanton lust and pagan blasphemy. Can Howie now stop the cults ultimate sacrifice before he himself comes face to face with the horror of THE WICKER MAN?
