Last we saw of this Wicker Man sequel, some character was giving the Spielberg face right up some poor old lady's skirt. Since then, the frenetic crotch-centric trailer has been scrapped in favor of a much more sullen Christopher Lee preview. Gone is the naked horse-head sex play. Instead, it's just a couple of good, young Christians making new friends and learning all about death cults. Behold the trailer for The Wicker Tree.
Robin Hardy, the director of the original 1973 horror film, has returned to helm The Wicker Tree. Hardy is calling this film a "spiritual companion piece." I don't know what that means, so we're just going with "sequel." Here's the official synopsis:
When two young missionaries (Brittania Nicol, Henry Garrett) head to Scotland, they are initially charmed by their engaging baron Sir Lachlan Morrison (Graham McTavish) and agree to become the local Queen of the May and Laddie for the annual Tressock town festival. But the couple is not prepared for the frightening consequences of their decision and the very disturbing secrets they are about to discover about Tressock's seemingly friendly townspeople.
We're not sure when the release date is just yet, but we'll be sure to keep you updated. It's got Brony sex in it, after all!
