THE WICKER MAN 4K Ultra HD Collector’s Edition In The Works

Robin Hardy‘s 1973 folk-horror classic THE WICKER MAN celebrates its 50th Anniversary this with an all-new 4K Restoration, which will premiere in the UK on April 30.

StudioCanal have restored the theatrical, director’s and final cut of the film and have revealed they will release a 4K Ultra HD Collector’s Edition with all three cuts on home entertainment in September.

The release will contain a combination of new and archival Special Features including an all-new documentary titled Return to Summerisle,  about the local celebrations surrounding the film’s anniversary.

They do things differently on Summerisle. They teach of Christianity in passing, but their own beliefs are more ancient… the strange, mysterious customs and rituals of distant places and bygone half forgotten days. But Summerisle is no distant South Pacific atoll – it is a small, remote, privately owned, twentieth-century island off the western coast of Scotland. To Summerisle comes Sergeant Howie of the Western Highland Police, investigating the alleged disappearance of twelve-year-old Rowan Morrison. What starts as a routine enquiry becomes a terrifying nightmare for this devout churchgoer.

THE WICKER MAN stars Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, Diane Cilento, Britt Ekland and Ingrid Pitt.
