Just when we thought the Cold War was over, leave it to these guys to heat it up again.
Alan Metter directs and a welcome ensemble again puts on departmental blues for all-new comedy antics. This time, addle-brained Cmdt. Lassard, motor-mouthed Jones, gun-fanatic Tackleberry, curvaceous Callahan and human steam vent Capt. Harris are called into action against the Godfather of the Russian Mafia. The imperious Don aims to tap into worldwide databases with a secret computer program he’s developed. But leave it to the Academyites to turn it into a case of arrested development!
Making you laughski!
The Academy is backski!

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.
