The film that spawned a thousand memes, this misguided attempt to remake a horror classic sees reclusive lawman Edward Malus (surprise: it’s Nicolas Cage!) travel to a secluded island to search for a girl who has gone missing.
Discovering sinister forces at work among the island’s secretive residents – including arcane rituals, a mysterious harvest festival and possibly even human sacrifice – Malus begins to suspect that the girl may not be the only one in danger; and that’s even before the bikes, the bear suits and the bees show up.
Idiotic, savage, and honkingly silly, The Wicker Man is perfect communal viewing, and the ideal ‘amuse bouche’ before a night of full-on Nicolas Cage Halloween fun.
“Puzzlingly misguided, Neil LaBute’s update The Wicker Man struggles against unintentional comedy and fails.”
