From the VHS box:

The 20th Century never touched Summerisle, where pagan fertility rites — and blood sacrifice — live on!

This eerie, evocative tale ensnares you in a world where pagan gods still rule. The search for a missing child sends a British police sergeant (Edward Woodward) to the isolated island of Summerisle. Here he is drawn into an ancient fertility cult led by the obsessed Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee) and a sensual Aphrodite (Britt Ekland). Modern police techniques are no match for pagan magic when the sergeant finally learns the unspeakable secret of the Wicker Man. “Pure, brilliant, spine-tingling fun,” said The Boston Globe about this award-winning cult classic.
