The Wicker Tree (2011)

Dir. Robin Hardy / UK / Drama, Horror / Colour / 96m

Robin Hardy’s follow-up to ‘The Wicker Man’ has not fared so well in the cult film status. It explores some similar territory but does not have the same raw edge or power to shock.

When two young missionaries (Brittania Nicol and Henry Garrett) head to Scotland, they are initially charmed by their engaging baron Sir Lachlan Morrison (Graham McTavish) and agree to become the local Queen of the May and Laddie for the annual Tressock town festival. But the couple is not prepared for the frightening consequences of their decision and the very disturbing secrets they are about to discover about Tressock's seemingly friendly townspeople.
