Wicker Man Series Episode 2

“O Glorious Sun, accept our sacrifice that we may be fruitful AGAIN!”

40 years after torching traditional Christian values in a giant Wicker Man, director Robin Hardy returns to Scotland for another irreverent story of ritualistic burning in 2011 follow-up The Wicker Tree. Can a pagan village reverse damage done by a leaky nuclear power plant by targeting a Born Again singer and her celibate boyfriend as they go door-to-door stumping for Jesus?  Or will the self-proclaimed “trailer trash” Texans prove tougher to smoke than virginal cop Howie?  No need to break a sweat chasing down this laddie.

Director Robin Hardy's reimagining of his eerie 1973 film, The Wicker Man. Young Christians Beth and Steve, a gospel singer and her cowboy boyfriend, leave Texas to preach door-to-door in Scotland. When, after initial abuse, they are welcomed with joy and elation to Tressock, the border fiefdom of Sir Lachlan Morrison, they assume their hosts simply want to hear more about Jesus. How innocent and wrong they are.
