PG-13 | | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
A sheriff investigating the disappearance of a young girl from a small island discovers there's a larger mystery to solve among the island's secretive, neo-pagan community.
The typeface of the opening credits is identical to that used in the original The Wicker Man (1973).
Prepare the drone!
When Edward slams the beer tankard on top of the bee, we're meant to believe it has been crushed. But when he was drinking out of the tankard, we could clearly see that it has a glass bottom, and like all such tankards it has a substantial lip, which means the bee would have been unharmed.
The Unrated DVD includes an alternate ending in which Malus is held down and his legs are broken at the knee. A wire mesh helmet is placed over his head and live bees are poured in. After he passes out, the helmet is removed and he is revived with a shot of adrenaline in the neck from his med-kit. Throughout all this, he keeps asking how can he be a good sacrifice if he does not believe in their religion. The movie proceeds along the lines of the theatrical version except the credits begin after the wicker man's burning head falls off. The "6 months later" scene is missing.
