  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Wicker Tree

    Sequel to the excellent "Wicker Man" directed by the same director and having Christopher Lee appearing in it but it is a new inferior actor that takes over as Lord Summerisle even "stealing his old clothes" but he never manage to be threatening like Lee. Movie also lacks tension and suspense and the script feels like a rehash of the original but lacks the wit, surprise, sex, horror and the excellent folk music.

  2. Matt's rating of the film The Wicker Tree

    Doesn't live up to the first one.

  3. theladyassassin's rating of the film The Wicker Tree

    I managed to get to the end of this simply out of curiosity. Wondered how this wacky plot would pan out.

  4. Westley's rating of the film The Wicker Tree

    I had high hopes for this because I really love Robin Hardy's previous films, but unfortunately I was disappointed with this one. The film fails to keep a consistent tone. The plot appears to have been rather poorly thought out. The behavior of the characters is often unbelievable in relation to the situations they're in. On a positive note, the cinematography is good. Overall though, the film is pretty bad.

  5. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film The Wicker Tree

    Just watch THE WICKER MAN again instead.

  6. Matt Burgess's rating of the film The Wicker Tree

    A cute little throwback to the 70s classic but completely lacking its hypnotic power. There are some beautiful shots of ruins and pastoral locations but on a whole the acting is dismal (especially from the braindead lead) and the script is pretty lazy and oddly chaste, lacking a sense of 'ritual' like the original. Dont expect much. Way better than the Nic Cage mess obvs.

  7. MODERNGRUMBLE's rating of the film The Wicker Tree

    A disappointment but how could it not be? Some decent parts but afterwards I just wanted to watch Kill List again.

  8. Tom JF's rating of the film The Wicker Tree

    scores points based on its weirdness and, assuming it was deliberate, Hardy's oddball sense of humour. The film takes chances with its tone, sometimes comedic, sometimes grim, (thus raising it above modern American takes on crazed communities like the Hills Have Eyes and Texas Chainsaw remakes) but as a result it's never scary and lacks the sweaty palmed claustrophobia of the orginal. A curiosity.

  9. Ryan Clark's rating of the film The Wicker Tree

    Not terrible, but not very good either. It's certainly not on the level of the original Wicker Man, which is a masterpiece. The idea behind The Wicker Tree is decent, and it could have made for a clever movie. But as it is, it's very uneven. Some good moments interspersed with clumsy and outright bad ones. Still, worth watching. And they should have kept the more unusual title, "Cowboys for Christ".
