When I worked at the BBC many years ago, we restored this amazing movie as best we could for our Film Club strand, but the extra elements were from half inch tape and were pretty ropey. that's all there was, sadly. I suspect that these,will only be available as 'extras', if at all............

makes more sense to release it at Halloween, but still a bummer.

This is a big pass for me. Interesting concept... B.O.R.I.N.G. execution.

I would have loved this piece of news to be true as I am a real Wickerhead. However, I think Play.com have got this all wrong and it's actually the 2006 Nicholas Cage version of the Wicker Man that will be out on Blu Ray in October 2010.

If you do a google search you will see that all the links about the film being on blu ray refer to the nicholas cage version apart from play.com!

To name but a few that clearly state that this IS the 1973 version, in addition to Play.com's own listing.... The fact that Amazon have the wrong artwork does not mean that the 1973 version is not finally on its way on that date.

I have no interest in the new version on Blu-ray but the original is an entirely different story.I've just added it to my "wish list".
