    ★★★★★

    Seminal British folk horror. A hypnotic and sadistic tale of superstition, sacrifice and corruption. An earthy, textural piece exposing a clash between modern values and ancient practices. The community itself serving as the villain of the piece, where the ostracised find themselves victim - as a means to maintain the community and establish the power of island leader ‘Lord Summerisle’. Rough around the edges and comparatively dated in some aspects. Nonetheless powerful, tense and atmospheric. An intriguing slow burn, well written and boasting strong performances from Woodward and Lee. The fiery climax will resonate long after viewing. 'Final Cut' release viewed.
