Several days ago we gave you guys the news that StudioCanal will be releasing The Wicker Man: The Final Cut into UK cinemas this September 27th and onto Blu-ray this October 13th. Today we have scored the official artwork for the pending home video release as well as some early details. Head on down below for the goods.
Synopsis: Cult horror classic in which a devout Christian policeman (Edward Woodward) is summoned to a remote Scottish island to investigate the disappearance of a child. While there he uncovers a bizarre pagan cult, led by Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee). As preparations for a sinister ritual celebration reach fever pitch, the policeman begins to realise what role the islanders intend him to play. Britt Ekland and Ingrid Pitt co-star.
- Disc 1: “The Final Cut” (HD), the UK theatrical Cut (HD) & the Director’s Cut (HD but with seamless branching to extra scenes in SD only) & audio commentary for Director’s Cut
- Disc 2: Supplemental Features
- Disc 3: The Soundtrack
As you can see, there are still some features to be announced, but hopefully we will not be disappointed as this is the 40th anniversary edition.
