Fans of the cult horror movie The Wicker Man went to a sing-along screening attended by director Robin Hardy.
The sold-out show at East Oxford’s Ultimate Picture Palace drew fans in pagan-style costume to sing spooky folk tunes and join in key moments of dialogue.
The 1973 movie stars Edward Woodward as a police officer investigating the disappearance of a girl on a Scottish island led by Lord Summerisle, played by Christopher Lee.
The film is now a cult classic. But during a question and answer session, Mr Hardy, 84, said: “The management hated it. Absolutely. They told Christopher Lee that it was the worst film they’d ever seen.”
Dr Ella Cole and Nick Boyes won prizes for the best-dressed members of the audience.
