1973 saw the release of one of the most famous horror films of all time – The Wicker Man, which is now regarded as a classic of British cinema.

Now, 39 years later, comes  The Wicker Tree.

The film is a sequel to the cult classic starring Christopher Lee

Once again directed by Robin Hardy and featuring a guest appearance from the legendary Sir Christopher Lee, this new haunting film welcomes us to a new terror starring Graham McTavish, Honeysuckle Weeks, Henry Garrett, Jacqueline Leonard and introduces Britannia Nicol in her acting debut.

The film sees a Texas gospel singer and her boyfriend, both devout evangelical Christians, being sent to Scotland on a mission to spread the word of God.

After a concert in Glasgow Cathedral the pair are invited by Sir Lachlan Morrison (McTavish) to preach in his remote border village.

They assume their host simply wants to hear more about the Bible and are delighted when offered central roles in the fiefdom’s May Day celebrations, especially their custom of the Riding of the Laddie.

But soon the horrifying reality dawns on the naïve couple as they learn the true significance of the Celtic pagan rites.

Special screening s of the film will take place later this month, followed by a Q&A session with the director.
