Decent documentary exploring the making of a classic film
20 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another Channel 4 documentary special, with their main man Mark Kermode this time narrating the troubled history of the production of the classic 1973 British shocker, and featuring interesting interviews with many of the principal players - Robin Hardy, Peter Snell and Anthony Shaffer, as well as cast members Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland and Ingrid Pitt who put in their two cents worth about the parts they played in the film.

The documentary also explores the technicalities behind the Wicker Man itself, as well as the inspiration for it and the difficulties of filming a movie in October that's supposed to take place in May. The trouble with the film's release, as well as its severe editing into a truncated version, is also mentioned and the movie padded with numerous clips from the production. So, basically, this tells you all you need to know about the movie - good stuff again from our reliable friends at Channel 4.
