Oh the horror of conservative Britain, this is what they’re fighting against: a promiscuous hippie commune with heathen rituals and pseudo-science, no Christians visible, only naked girls jumping over fire - of course, since it would be too dangerous with clothes on. “The Wicker Man” is a hilarious, eerie, bold, wicked and magnificently written piece of a movie.
"The Wicker Man" starts off promising and for most of its length maintains a level of suspense, but as it reaches towards its conclusion it feels a bit disappointing. This is not to say it is a bad film, just that one might wish it was better. My two cents:3.5/5
3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I love the overall setting The Wicker Man created which complimented the conservative Woodward's nightmare. The music was fun, even if it was goofy & a bit dated. Just when it started getting boring the discomfort level went up and I was actually disturbed by the end. Christopher Lee made a great bad guy and Britt Ekland's dance of seduction was too silly to be erotic.
