'The Wicker Man' Blu-ray Detailed

Posted Tue Dec 31, 2013 at 06:00 AM PST by

The original cult horror classic will terrify Blu-ray in January. You can order 'The Wicker Man' now.

As previously reported, Lionsgate is preparing 'The Wicker Man' for Blu-ray on January 7.

When a young girl mysteriously vanishes, Police Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) travels to a remote Scottish island to investigate. But the seemingly quiet community is not as it appears, as the detective uncovers a secretive pagan society led by the strange Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee). While the townsfolk tempt and threaten him with bizarre rituals and wanton lust, Howie must race to discover the truth behind the girl's disappearance before his clash with Lord Summerisle builds to a terrifying conclusion - one that cemented this cult shocker as a modern horror masterpiece.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Interview with director Robin Hardy; "Restoration Comparison" featurette; "Worshipping The Wicker Man" featurette; and "The Music of The Wicker Man" featurette.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.99.
