    Part of Midnight Movies.

    After receiving an anonymous letter about a missing 12-year-old girl, a devoutly Christian cop (Edward Woodward) travels by seaplane to a Scottish island to investigate. But the islanders welcome neither his badge nor religious devotion, for laird of the isle (Christopher Lee) and his devoted followers worship only the pagan gods of old—and those gods demand a sacrifice. Woodward fears for the missing girl's life and follows every possible lead to find her—despite the islanders' interference—before she becomes a human sacrificial lamb. Seen for decades only in mutilated copies, the new restoration by Studiocanal, anointed “the final cut” by director Robin Hardy, now 83, is the culmination of a worldwide search for footage conducted via Facebook.
