When a young girl mysteriously disappears, Police Sergeant Howie travels to a remote Scottish island to investigate. But this pastoral community, led by the strange Lord Summerisle, is not what it seems as the devout Christian detective soon uncovers a secret society of wanton lust and pagan blasphemy. Can Howie now stop the cult's ultimate sacrifice before he himself comes face-to-face with the horror of the Wicker Man?

I almost got it. submitted by CasualTim on July 26, 2010, 10:58am After speaking with a fan of this film, I'm willing to concede that it has the potential to more effectively bestow heebie-jeebies upon its viewer if said viewer does not have prior knowledge of the story (thanks to the beautiful and always-talented Nicolas Cage).

Unfortunately, I had already been Caged by the time I saw this original version. Any foreignness and surrealism passed right through me. I was watching a softer-focused, nudity-heightened version of something I already knew about.

And I still maintain that some psychedelic substance, while not present in the film, either influenced its director due to its overwhelming presence in society, or its overwhelming presence in said director's system. The Wicker Man made me think more about exactly how high everyone must have been in the 70's than about whether I'd be able to get to sleep that night.

Disturbing submitted by willow on August 12, 2016, 9:59pm For some reason I saw this as a young teenager and it kind of traumatized me. Very disturbing and weird.

Wicker man submitted by boocathy621 on July 26, 2018, 8:26pm Scary film. The wicked man was a torture punishment used in war by the celts.

laughable garbage. submitted by Tassos on November 13, 2021, 5:02pm worthless flick. Started OK, disintegrated into a bunch of silly nonsense soon.
