Things Heat Up For "The Wicker Tree"

Available on a new Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment, the 2010 horror feature "The Wicker Tree", written and directed by Robin Hardy, contains many direct parallels and allusions to the 1973 classic feature "The Wicker Man', also directed by Hardy :

"...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 iare not prepared for the frightening consequences of their decision and the very disturbing secrets they are about to discover about the seemingly friendly townspeople of 'Tressock'."

Cast also inludes Graham McTavish, Jacqueline Leonard, Honeysuckle Weeks, Clive Russell and Christopher Lee, from "The Wicker Man".
