Inside the Wicker Man

Hastily made on a tiny budget, hammy and visually drab, the 1973 film The Wicker Man was readily consigned to the B-feature dustbin. Yet something – its bucolic charm, pagan rituals, Britishness? – has endowed it with a rare cult status. This wry and entertaining account of the film’s making, and the numerous disasters it survived (the film’s only negative was accidentally destroyed), considers the enduring appeal of Robin Hardy’s classic.
