Horror fans can get two new versions of The Wicker Man on December 19.
In a story from Fangoria, if you missed it in theaters, Warner Bros. recent retelling of 1973's The Wicker Man (starring Nicolas Cage), is going to be available the same day as a two disc version is released of the classic film.
In the 2006 retelling, a young child has gone missing and it's up to a haunted but determined policeman to travel to the remote island community where she was last seen and solve the lingering mystery of her disappearance in director Neil LaBute's updated reworking of Anthony Shaffer's 1973 cult horror classic. Upon receiving a letter from his one-time fiancé, Willow (Kate Beahan), imploring him to search for her missing daughter on the secluded island of Summersisle, California highway patrolman Edward Malus (Nicolas Cage) quickly makes his way to the island to locate the girl and seek an answer as to why Willow suddenly and inexplicably disappeared shortly before their wedding date.
Once there, Malus is troubled to discover that although there are traces of the child to be found in such locations as the local schoolhouse, the residents of Summersisle seem reluctant to offer any specific details as to the girl's apparent death. His investigation effectively stalled by the highly secretive Wiccan community, Sheriff Malus soon discovers that there are still some cultures that have their own unique beliefs about humankind's relationship with Mother Earth, and refuse to adapt to the rules of modern society.
The Wicker Man two disc installment will come to us courtesy of Anchor Bay.
On December 5, Cinema Epoch will be releasing Mad Cowgirl, while Visionary Entertainment and Koch will be putting out Twice the Fear that same day.
Camp Motion Pictures will be bringing out two "camping" related titles on January 16 with Cannibal Campout and Woodchipper Massacre.
