One of the most anticipated films of the year is The Wicker Tree, a companion piece to The Wicker Man that promises that “HE” will return this January. That’s right, we received word that Anchor Bay will be releasing Robin Hardy’s flick in theaters in January 27. In addition, inside you’ll now find the film’s official trailer and one sheet.
“When two young missionaries (Brittania Nicol, Henry Garrett) head to Scotland, they are initially charmed by the locals in the town of Tressock, and agree to become the local Queen of the May and Laddie for the annual town festival. But the couple is not prepared for the frightening consequences of their decision, and the very disturbing secrets they are about to discover about Tressock’s seemingly friendly townspeople.”
Written and Directed by Robin Hardy, The Wicker Tree also features Graham McTavish, Jacqueline Leonard, Honeysuckle Weeks, Clive Russell with Christopher Lee, star of the original The Wicker Man.
