Pagan Movie Nite - The Wicker Man (1973)

If you have not seen the original 1973 version, this is your chance!

This is a perfect movie for Beltane. Here is a link to a recent English periodical article on the linkage of Wicker man and Beltane: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/9230904/Beltane-Britains-ancient-festival-is-making-a-comeback.html

This film is a horror?? classic with heavy Celtic Paganism themes. It does contain Nudity, Violence, and Adult Situations.

    Interesting movie and good conversation afterwards. I remember back in 1973, that this movie was presented as being scary, dark, and horrifying. Because of that I did not see it back then. I don't know if I have changed my ideas of what is scary etc. or if it's just the world we live in today, but I would not use any of the above adjectives to describe this movie.

      in my opinion I think it is funny, it is about two jesus freaks what go to summer isle to convert the Scottish pagans,
