Celebrate Hallowe’en with a cult classic in its final cut. One of the most disturbing and audacious horror films of all time revolves around a young girl’s disappearance which brings police sergeant Neil Howie (Edward Woodward) to a remote Scottish island. He is plunged into a sinister society of pagan pageantry and nature worship presided over by the menacing Lord Summerisle (horror icon Christopher Lee). Set to an influential psychedelic-folk soundtrack this occult classic retains its power to fascinate and shock. Chilling, bizarre… and erotic.
