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

Easter Eggs
On Anchor Bay Entertainment’s versions of the cult film 'The Wicker Man,' you can find some very cool and rare footage hidden in the depths of the menus.

This Easter Egg is available on the disc of the theatrical version of the film, which is sold individually and is also part of the limited 2-disc edition.
Insert that disc and from the main menu, select the 'Extras' menu entry. On the next screen then highlight 'The Wicker Man Enigma' and then press the 'up' key on your remote control. This will highlight a large question mark on the screen and if you press 'Enter' now, you will be treated to some rare interview footage. It is a 25-minute 'Critics Choice' interview from the 1997 re-release of the movie, featuring actor Christopher Lee and director Robin Hardy. While the image quality of the segment is very poor, the interview itself most certainly is not!
