Wicker Man Series Episode 1

How’d ya like them apples?

Edward Woodward (TV’s original Equalizer) travels to a remote Scottish island in search of a missing schoolgirl and finds The Wicker Man instead. Does the original 1973 cult film live up to its legacy as one of the greatest British horror films of all time?  And what scares the hosts more: that Christopher “Dracula” Lee might have murdered this child in an occult harvest ritual, or that he celebrates the sacrifice by donning drag to lead nudist villagers in song-and-dance?  Enjoy the fruits of Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart’s labours when you Donate for Platinum this Fall.
