Interview with THE WICCA WOMAN author David Pinner

on November 17, 2014 | Leave a comment

One of the most iconic of British horror films, 1973′s The Wicker Man tells of a police sergeant who travels to a remote community to probe the disappearance of a girl, but finds his investigation hindered by duplicitous locals, who we later discover partake in pagan rites and sacrificial murder.

The film has been highly praised on a number of levels, including its script by noted playwright and screenwriter Anthony Shaffer (Frenzy, Sleuth). But Shaffer also took inspiration from a 1967 novel titled Ritual by a young author named David Pinner, from whom he and star Christopher Lee had purchased the book’s film rights.

Now, nearly 40 years later, Pinner has released a follow up to Ritual, titled The Wicca Woman.
