THE WICKER MAN
1973, Rialto Pictures, 95 min, UK, Dir: Robin Hardy

In this rarely screened supernatural classic from writer Anthony Shaffer (SLEUTH), puritanical policeman Edward Woodward investigates a girl's disappearance on a Scottish isle and has his world turned topsy-turvy when he confronts the natives' truly primitive natures. Christopher Lee co-stars as the enigmatic head of the local community, who plays an ancient and all-too-horrifying cat-and-mouse game with the idealistic policeman, with help from erotic nymph Britt Ekland.


HOT FUZZ
2007, Focus Features, 121 min, UK / France / USA, Dir: Edgar Wright

In the action-packed comedy from the makers of the hit SHAUN OF THE DEAD, Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is the finest cop London has to offer - he’s so good, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, Angel’s superiors send him to a seemingly crime-free village where his talents won’t be quite so embarrassing. There he is partnered with overeager officer Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), whose dreams of exciting gunfights and high-octane car chases become reality after some grisly incidents rock the village. With Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton and Edward Woodward.
