Yesterday, we showed you a new poster for The Wicker Tree and today we have the newly released US trailer. Anchor Bay Entertainment recently acquired The Wicker Tree for US distribution and it will have a limited theatrical release on January 27th. We expect a DVD/Blu-ray/VOD release to follow shortly after.
Directed by Robin Hardy, The Wicker Tree is considered a spiritual sequel or companion piece to The Wicker Man, which Hardy directed in 1973.
“In THE WICKER TREE, two young missionaries from Texas (Brittania Nicol, Henry Garrett) head to Scotland to educate the Scottish heathens in the way of Christ. They are initially charmed by the locals in the town of Tressock and agree to become the local Queen of the May and Laddie for the annual town festival. But the couple are 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.”
