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.

This legendary cult favorite was released to relatively little fanfare but has gone on to be regarded as one of the most disturbing and audacious horror films of all time. A young girl’s disappearance brings police sergeant Neil Howie (Edward Woodward) to a remote Scottish island, where he finds himself plunged into a sinister society of pagan pageantry and nature worship presided over by the menacing Lord Summerisle (British horror icon Christopher Lee). Set to an influential psychedelic-folk soundtrack (cue the creepy panpipes), THE WICKER MAN is a one-of-a-kind occult classic that retains its power to fascinate and shock.

" English police sergeant Neil Howie travels to a small Scottish village to investigate the disappearance of a little girl. There, he finds clues of strange happenings, strange even by normal Scottish standards. Which eventually lead Howie unto some pretty morbid pagan rituals. I mean, y'know.... Morbid even by normal Scottish standards. "

The Wicker Man

“The Wicker Man unspools so slowly and subliminally that you know something is “off” and sinister is about to happen, but you don’t see the trap engulfing you until its too late. Everything is so strange that it becomes like a hallucination that feels so tangible you don’t notice it’s a lie until you try to grasp it like a reflection in a stream. The pastoral symphony of the earliest scenes belies a dark, twisted heart that winds up being something of a cosmic joke.   Edward Woodward’s Sergeant Howie is our surrogate into this pagan world. The old ways have returned to this Scottish island, and its insular world is ephemeral in a way that becomes alluring. Howie, a staunch Christian and true believer, recoils in horror to the site of naked girls jumping over a fire and chanti” read more

"14.7. Kristitty poliisi on tyrmistynyt, kun pakanat uskovat höpöhöpöjuttuihin eivätkä Jumalaan ja Jeesukseen vapahtajaan. Irvokas ironia tässä ajattelussa paistaa läpi samalla, kun poliisi kiertää ympäri rivoa ja erittäin fallosrakasta saarta. Mystinen alavire pitää hyvin otteessaan. Lopun epäusko tyhmien uskomusten keskellä ja samanaikainen Jumalaan turvautuminen luovat mehukkaan taisteluparin."

"A disappearance takes a policeman onto an island where ancient, pagan rituals live on and the rules of the civilized world do not apply. Unfortunately most people associate this name to the Nicolas Cage travesty that was the eponymous remake. Make no mistake, "The Wicker Man" is an exemplary film that, once you see, you won't be able to deny it's sweeping influence on such films as "Hereditary",among others. "
