The Wicker Tree (UK) in April

Anchor Bay have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of The Wicker Tree on 30th April 2012. From the makers of the cult classic The Wicker Man, and based on director Robin Hardy's own novel Cowboys for Christ, The Wicker Tree follows a Texas gospel singer and her boyfriend, both devout evangelical Christians, who are sent to Scotland on a mission to spread the word of God. After a concert in Glasgow Cathedral the pair are invited by Sir Lachlan Morrison to preach in his remote border village. They assume their host simply wants to hear more about the Bible and are delighted when offered central roles in the fiefdom's May Day celebrations, especially their custom of the Riding of the Laddie. But soon the horrifying reality dawns on the naïve couple as they learn the true significance of the Celtic pagan rites.

The film stars Graham McTavish, Britannia Nicol, Henry Garrett, Honeysuckle Weeks and Jacqueline Leonard. There is also a guest appearance from Sir Christopher Lee.

Extras include:

  • Making of (12mins)
  • Deleted Scenes (10mins)
  • Trailer

There is a double-bill cinema screening of The Wicker Man & The Wicker Tree followed by a Q&A with Robin Hardy taking place at the Prince Charles Cinema on April 25th.
