The Wicker Man (1973) (Director's Cut) Extravaganza
A celebrated classic of British folk horror THE WICKER MAN will be screening at Deptford Cinema alongside food treats, a film talk and crafts as part of our Halloween season.
Celebrated as one of the best British horror films ever made, the WICKER MAN follows the story of a police sergeant, who is sent to a Scottish island village in search of a missing girl whom the townsfolk claim never existed. Stranger still are the rites that take place there.
'Dominating the (horror) landscape like its eponymous basketwork bloke, is the towering figure of The Wicker Man' (Adam Smith, EMPIRE).
'A potent mix of pagan horror and hippy weirdness' (Stephen Dalton, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORT).
Join us before the film to build a collaborative Wickerman with tasty food provided by The Greenhouse, Deptford to nurse your post-Halloween party hangover.
COMPETITION TIME: We'll be giving away a copy of the Director's Cut AND Final Cut versions of the film to the most impressive mask/ costume on the day!!
We will also be joined by special guest and cult film expert Dr Matt Melia from Kingston University introducing the film. Join us after the film for snacks and discussion too.
A Sunday filled with fantastic folk horror delights!
