The Wicker Man [2006]

DVD Talk
25 February 2007
  • Conclusion: Neil LaBute's Wicker Man remake is a career misstep that the director will undoubtedly regret for many years. The film works as neither a thriller nor a drama, and takes itself too seriously for us to believe it was intended as parody. It's basically just awful.

The Wicker Man (2006)

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: A masterpiece of unintentional camp excess, 'The Wicker Man' is the most hilarious piece of hack work I've seen in ages. This Blu-ray version is virtually identical to the HD DVD version, and looks and sounds perfectly swell (although once again Blu-ray gets cheated out of Dolby TrueHD track).

The Wicker Man (2006)

Cinema Blend
1 September 2006
  • Excerpt: Wicker Man may be a remake, but at least it's not another remake of an Asian horror movie. The Wicker Man is all American, and with that comes an obvious plot and a decided lack of scares. It also means Nicolas Cage instead of an unknown teenage actress or worse, Sarah Michelle Gellar.

  • Excerpt: Much of the fun of the original 1973 film version of Anthony Shaffer's novel The Wicker Man came from its thoroughly unlikable protagonist: Playing a pushy, prudish Christian zealot, Edward Woodward stormed through the story like a cut-rate Cotton Mather, condemning everyone around him and earning...

  • Conclusion: This has limited interest to folks who don't know the old movie, and an excruciating experience for those who do. Bad idea. Bad film.

Empire Online

  • Conclusion: The Wicker Man is, more than anything else, a film about what people can do in the name of religion or, more generally, belief. Its power comes not from appeals to the supernatural but from a deep understanding of our own undeniable nature. Horror doesn't get much closer to home than that.
