Religious Studies Movie Night
The Department of Religious Studies is happy to sponsor our first movie of the semester, The Wicker Man (1973). Considered one of the classics of “folk horror,” the film follows Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) who arrives on the small Scottish island of Summerisle to investigate the report of a missing child. A conservative Christian, the policeman observes the residents' frivolous sexual displays and strange pagan rituals, particularly the temptations of Willow (Britt Ekland), daughter of the island magistrate, Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee). The more Sergeant Howie learns about the islanders' strange practices, the closer he gets to solving the real mystery.
The movie starts at 6:30 pm on Thursday, February 27 in Richardson 015 (basement)
