Synopsis

Boasting perversion, paganism and one of the most chilling endings in movie history, Robin Hardy's bleak horror yarn is truly the stuff of nightmares. Sent to investigate the disappearance of a child on a remote Scottish island, god-fearing policeman Edward Woodward is met by a community that lives by decidedly un-Christian values. Faced with the likes of cross-dressing lord Christopher Lee and brazen temptress Britt Ekland, the poor copper struggles to follow his righteous path. But faith is no protection from fate...
