The 1973 British horror classic The Wicker Man, starring Christopher Lee, is being released on DVD in what distributor Anchor Bay Entertainment calls "the rarely seen, uncut edition" lasting 103 minutes. Reporting on the release, today's (Wednesday) New York Post observed that the movie, directed by Robin Hardy, never performed strongly at the box office after it was released in 1973 and again in 1978, "but over the years it has built a cult following." It noted that Cinefantastique magazine called it "the Citizen Kane of horror movies."
