Max's rating of the film Wake Wood

i had high hopes (loving Don't Look Now and The Wicker Man and olde Hammer Horrors) but am struggling to justify even two stars. it earns them for 1) the crazy birthing sequence involving a spinal chord, placenta and flaming mud, and 2) the gentle but frenetic editing of the sex scene. so there's that.
