Gameful, intelligent, provocative, tongue in cheek, shameless about its ridicule songs; open to the public about its clues. Woodward is excellent being rational and puritan at the same time. Great ending.

Wow. It's hard to think of this as a horror film. Maybe an anti-horror film.

Based on a text of the prestigious novelist and screenwriter Anthony Shaffer ("Frenzy," "Sleuth") Robin Hardy adapted with a light and carefree approach this unusual thriller features, due in part to have been conceived as a musical director ethnographic , which can either divert the viewer's attention, turn your concentration, or maybe give a breath of fresh air to anyone who wants to see somethi... read more

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"A film that’s become synonymous with British horror, The Wicker Man follows a conservative Christian policeman (Edward Woodward) seeking a missing girl on a Hebridean island inhabited by pagans. The first half has an (intentional) air of the faintly ridiculous about it, embodied equally by Christopher Lee’s gloriously campy portrayal of the cult’s leader and the life-on-the-island sequences that are Pythonesque in their absurdist look at culture clash. But the film’s impish wit and soft,"

" Watched October 17th Rating: Streamed this on Shudder as well. I'd recommend the free trial for anyone else doing a horror marathon this month, it's been nice. Work has been taking it out of me and I didn't want to keep myself up late with anything too scary, so it was a classic horror night. I have heard so much about this one, I was expecting it to be pretty chill and maybe a little boring. But it had so many moments of surprising, perplexing pagan behavior and Edward Woodward being an ups"

"28.3 Witchfinder Generalin ohella 70-luvun merkittävin folk horror -elokuva. Tunnelma on mystinen, jopa hypnoottinen. Pienen skotlantilaisen kylän tiiviys sekä paatoksellinen kulttiyhteisö herättää jo alkumetreiltä lähtien suurta kummastusta. Sana outo ei riitä kyllä kuvaamaan tätä elokuvaa. Harrasta kristittyä poliisia näyttelevän Edward Woodwardin "juuh elikkäs" -ilme hänen ympärillään pyörivän pakanayhteisön kieroutunutta elämäntyyliä kohtaan herätti kyllä jonkin"

"Regarded as one of the best British horrors ever, this cult classic has just a fascinating story behind the scenes as it does on screen. Edward Woodward stars as a mainland policeman sent to a remote Scottish island where a young girl has been reported missing, soon finding a community hiding something darker. Christopher Lee called this his best role ever and while there's fun to have with the songs and Britt Ekland's laughably bad dubbing, it still manages to chill."

Movie Reviews (701-750) (50 movies items)

" A film that defies normal storytelling and combines elements of thriller, crime movie, folk music numbers and horror. It has an aura of realism through it too and memorable cinematography. While it's ending can be said to be predictable there is something natural about it as this is the only way it could and should end. Britt Ekland's nude dance is unforgettable, but I'm beyond angry and sad that the complete and longest version of the film is gone forever - destroyed by studio heads who hated "

"October 9 "I believe in the life eternal, as promised to us by our Lord, Jesus Christ." "That is good. For believing what you do, we confer upon you a rare gift, these days - a martyr's death." This was one of those horror classics that I've been meaning to see for years, but never gotten around to seeing it until now. With that said I'm kind of glad I saw it now as I'm not 100% sure if I would've appreciated it if I watched it say, four years ago. I found this to be a very well-made film wi"
