Robin Hardy’s long awaited ‘Wicker Man’ sequel, ‘The Wicker Tree’, gets a trailer

Ever since Nicolas Cage was first heard to exclaim “not the bees!”, cinephiles have lamented the fact that Robin Hardy’s fantastic 1970s cult film (in more senses than one) The Wicker Man has been inadvertently associated with Neil LaBute’s silly remake. Hardy himself has now re-emerged with his cinematic riposte of sorts, The Wicker Tree, a follow-up to the original film. Based on his novel Cowboys for Christ, the film had its world premiere here in Montreal at the Fantasia Film Festival back in July, and our own Justine Smith gave it a glowing review – which gets quoted here! Major props to Mrs. Smith, especially since this first proper trailer is pretty badass, even inadvertently recalling Lars von Trier’s Melancholia. Take a look below.
