Head back to Summerisle and discover the dark secrets of the harvest with our Ultimate Guide to The Wicker Man, the 1973 classic that defined the folk horror genre and gave us one of cinema’s most unsettling images.

The peace of a rural idyll is rarely what it seems, and never more so than in British Lion’s nightmarish interpretation of David Pinner’s novel ‘Ritual’. The Ultimate Guide to 1973’s The Wicker Man takes you deep into a world of pagan faith, deceit and human sacrifice – this full colour magazine is an essential for any fan of Classic Monsters, Christopher Lee or the darker side of storytelling.

The Wicker Man 1973 Ultimate Guide Magazine

We take you through the film’s development from its origins in Pinner’s novel to the glorious finished motion picture, and celebrate the keen creative minds that brought it to the screen. Director Robin Hardy and screenwriter Anthony Shaffer crafted a story of old religion and contemporary terror, creating a movie world where tension and dread can chill the blood far more than any baying monster. Within the pages of this magazine guide to The Wicker Man you’ll discover a range of articles with a wealth of information and insight about the making of the movie and its place in horror culture.

With its clean, timeless design and high-end production values, this Ultimate Guide to The Wicker Man is the perfect way to gain a fresh appreciation of one of horror’s most enduring classics.

You’ll meet cinematographer Harry Waxman, composer Paul Giovanni, producer Peter Snell and many others, learning about the many projects they worked on.
