Quotes

Village Sister: You wait a minute! Do you have permission to charge in and disturb...
Edward Malus: No! I don't need anybody's goddamn permission! I'm gonna search every inch of this town and anybody who interferes will be brought up on murder charges, got that? You have my ...


Goofs

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.


Alternate Versions

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.
