Unique and very well-made movie. I have a copy on VHS which runs 103 minutes, meaning that the expunged scenes are included.
The story unfolds nicely, introducing our hero and then telling the tale of why he traveled to Summerisle… intricate, clever and frightening. Sophisticated and entertaining. Christopher Lee is typically magnificent. I’d read that he feels this is his best film role.
Spooky goings-on, a murder investigation, weird ritual practices… it slowly builds and builds. Very well-paced. And it delivers big-time.
Really an excellent film. Original, well-told — 100% recommended!
