Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the cult classic that Cinefantastique called “the Citizen Kane of horror films” when The Wicker Man arrives on Blu-ray for the first time January 7, 2014 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

The Wicker Man will also be available on Digital HD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View. Featuring an all-new, restored edition of director Robin Hardy’s final cut, this spectacular Blu-ray also features brand new bonus content including a restoration comparison, an interview with Robin Hardy and two informative featurettes. Winner of the Saturn Award for Best Horror Film, The Wicker Man has been described as “a movie that’ll burn its way into your unconscious and give you nightmares for years” (BBC).

When a young girl mysteriously vanishes, Police Sergeant Howie (Woodward) travels to a remote Scottish island to investigate. But the seemingly quiet community is not as it appears, as the detective uncovers a secretive pagan society led by the strange Lord Summerisle (Lee). While the townsfolk tempt and threaten him with bizarre rituals and wanton lust, Howie must race to discover the truth behind the girl’s disappearance before his clash with Lord Summerisle builds to a terrifying conclusion – one that has cemented this cult shocker as a modern horror masterpiece.

    Awesome movie, but how many friggin times is the “uncut” version of this film gonna be released?? Between this movie, Halloween & The Evil Dead (all due to Anchor Bay)I’m getting tired of all these new versions & special editions. Hell, put some work into a film that hasn’t seen an official release yet (Funeral Home, Death Weekend, Next of Kin, etc. etc.).
