This was taken at Dan Mumford's Studio in London. That's the variant edition in the foreground.

I love the movie. Saw it for the first time 2 years ago and it left me quite shaken. I went into it blindly... I think I was only hoping to see Ingrid Pitt naked when I added it to my Netflix DVD rental queue. But the movie was a masterpiece... I thought about the film for days.

I like the art on this poster... but unfortunately not enough to reserve so much wall space for it. I'd certainly feel a kinship with anyone that buys. It's awesome to see movies like this get a tribute decades after...

I love this film. I'll even confess to having the score on my player... 8)

I haven't seen the movie, but that variant poster is gorgeous! The colors look amazing. Might have to check the movie out this weekend.

Anybody who admires the British original should probably stay far, far away from the American remake. :lol:

A beautiful poster for the original film! But everyone seems to be talking about the remake rather than the 1973 classic. I guess the remake has damaged the enigma of the original somewhat. Having said that, I think the Nicholas Cage remake was the best comedy to come out of 2006.

Eh? Where are these discussions? Everyone here knows this is for the original classic.

I refuse to ever watch that abortion of a remake...

That's pretty much all you need to know about the remake.

Its pretty ridiculous. So poor in comparison to the original it probably does more to make the original look good then give it a bad name.

Recently watched the semi-sequel to the 70s outing called "The Wicker Tree" and that's not up to par either. Took me two or three goes of falling asleep during it to finally make it to the end. The sorta slow burn worked in the Wicker Man with that interesting air of mystery to keep you compelled. To do it again is just plain boring.

The variant arrived today here in the UK...it's a seriously gorgeous looking print, the blue and yellow on black is luscious. I was going to take a few photos, but won't ruin the surprise for those that have it on the way, it's cool to see these things first hand.

Excellent packaging too, thanks Dark City Gallery
