Synopsis

When God-fearing police sergeant Neil Howie travels to a remote Scottish island to investigate the disappearance of a young girl, he unwittingly uncovers a dark secret. Beneath their kooky exteriors, the inhabitants are members of a fanatical pagan cult who practice bizarre rituals in the belief that it will bring them a plentiful harvest. Even worse, they have elaborate and terrifying plans for their interfering visitor. While some of the film's theatrics may seem dated compared with modern horror movies, this sinister thriller remains an influential classic of British cinema.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
