The Wicker Man

Shame. Went to all that trouble with the costume and forgot about the watch.

To properly celebrate Samhain, with a Christian sacrifice, here is the 1973 original of The Wicker Man. Not the crap 2006 Hollywood remake – I wouldn’t inflict that on my worse enemies. Well, maybe I would. Unfortunately, the original has been so messed about with that I don’t know if this YouTube film has all the good bits left in. We can only hope. It certainly has an opening sequence on the mainland I haven’t seen before, where Howie demonstrates his bigot qualifications. And this addition helps makes sense of the Summer Isle portion of the film (if it’s all there).

Hope you have a roaring good Samhain!
