No scary movie is as scary as when it is seen in a dark theater on a larger than life screen! Cinestudio invites the entire movie-loving community to join us ( if you dare) at the rare screening of the 4K 50th Anniversary print of the ultimate British cult favorite. After receiving an anonymous letter about a missing 12-year-old girl, devout Christian and dedicated cop Neil Howie (Woodward) travels to one of those remote, austerely beautiful Scottish islands to investigate. But the islanders are far from friendly, caring little for his badge or religion — for the imperious laird of the isle Lord Summerisle (Lee) and his fanatical followers worship only the pagan deities of the past — and those gods demand a sacrifice. Fearing the very worst, Howie is forced to do battle with the islanders’ bewildering misdirection. Can he save her – and himself – from becoming a human sacrifice to the merciless whims of Celtic deities, long-denied their place in the firmament? “A movie that’ll burn its way into your unconscious and give you nightmares for many years to come.” – Jamie Russell,
