Branching Out with New Morals in The Wicker Tree: A Movie Review

14 May 2012 3:28 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Writer/Director: Robin Hardy. Cast: Brittania Nicol, Henry Garrett, Christopher Lee and Graham McTavish. Sometimes, the classics should be left alone and allowed to age gracefully. In the case of The Wicker Tree, the die-hards of the original The Wicker Man, expecting a modern take, will be disappointed. Ignoring the Nicolas Cage travesty, this re-imaging of the folk horror tale can be looked at in a different perspective as an analogy of how some missionaries from yesteryears may have been treated when they went out to preach the word of God to the new world. That is, if converting cultures to a new belief system is considered a crime, the angels in Heaven should be weeping. Free Will is about personal choice, and the horror should come in dealing what results from it. For Adam and Eve, they lost paradise and a direct line to God when they ate from the apple. »

DVD Review - The Wicker Tree (2011)

30 April 2012 8:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wicker Tree, 2011.

Written and Directed by Robin Hardy.

Starring Graham McTavish, Jacqueline Leonardas, Brittania Nicol, Honeysuckle Weeks, Henry Garrett and Clive Russell.

Synopsis:

Two devout Christians are sent on a mission to spread the word of God to the residents of Tressock in Scotland, where they are invited to take part in a local festival.

Horror is personal. So very, very personal. It’s the best thing and the worst thing about the genre. A horror story that can speak to your darkest fears will bury its images and its message that bit deeper in your memory. By the same token, a horror story full of generic frights and shocks is quickly forgotten, doomed to live out its days in the ‘£3 or Less’ bargain bin. This is why The Wicker Man (1973) is rightly deemed a cult classic, and entirely why I can’t quite remember that one film Eliza Dushku »

Review: The Wicker Tree (Blu-ray)

24 April 2012 8:36 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Wicker Tree, Robin Hardy’s long awaited “sequel” to the cult film The Wicker Man, is a mildly interesting experiment, but sadly not much more. Beth Boothby (Brittania Nicol) and her boyfriend Steve (Henry Garrett) are a couple of Christian missionaries from the U.S. who are sent to Scotland to spread the gospel in the small, isolated village of Tressock.

If you have seen The Wicker Man, you know this can’t go well. And honestly, even if you haven’t seen the first film, you can still predict the chain of non-events that make up this film. Beth and Steve are as American as Apple Pie, and that’s part of the problem. Sure, there is the clash of religious beliefs from the Evangelical Christians butting up against the Neo Pagans in Scotland, but it’s too broadly comic and on the nose to be effective. The »

Exclusive Interview: Writer/Director Robin Hardy on The Wicker Tree, Completing his Trilogy and More

23 April 2012 3:07 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It has been almost forty years now since writer/director Robin Hardy first mystified audiences with his uber-eccentric cult classic The Wicker Man, and now the UK filmmaker is back with his companion tale, the darkly comedic The Wicker Tree.

Starring newcomers Brittania Nicol and Henry Garrett as well Graham McTavish and Christopher Lee, The Wicker Tree is centered around two young missionaries who travel to a small village in Scotland where they hope to spread the gospel of Jesus; unaware of any sinister plans, the pair get caught in the middle of a ritual which will force them both to make the 'ultimate sacrifice' in the end.

Recently Dread Central had the opportunity to chat with Hardy about his follow-up efforts on The Wicker Tree as well as why this latest film isn't really a sequel and why his third film in the Wicker trilogy may end up being »

The Wicker Tree - Blu-ray Review

23 April 2012 6:34 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

.There.s power in the blood.. Robin Hardy.s return to the world of wicker has been long anticipated by fans. It.s been a project on the burner for a long time. Such anticipation can only result in disappointment although there are still touches of that original brilliance. Beth Boothby (Brittania Nicol) used to be a sleazy pop diva until she found Jesus (which she.d most likely pronounce Geeeee-sus). She.s now a Texas evangelical who has come to the wilds of Scotland to preach to the heathens there with her boyfriend Steve (Henry Garrett). They have to be in love since they.re wearing promise rings and are saving their lust for their wedding night. The duo have been invited »

Wicker Man sequel revisits original's murky territory

2 April 2012 3:49 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Wicker Tree has 'jokey bits, sex and a very horrific ending', says returning director Robin Hardy, who admits to schadenfreude at Hollywood remake's failure

Though it was the victim of a takeover at its film company when it was first released in 1973, and earned its director Robin Hardy just £5,000, The Wicker Man has become a cult classic.

The story of a Scottish policeman investigating the disappearance of a girl among a pagan community in the Highlands, it has inspired an academic conference, a musical, several parodies, "singalong" screenings across the country, songs by Pulp and Iron Maiden and a disastrous 2006 remake directed by Neil Labute and starring Nicolas Cage.

In 2010 the Guardian listed it as the fourth greatest horror film of all time. Now, 39 years on, Hardy has released The Wicker Tree, which revisits the territory he explored to such disturbing effect. Having played at some festivals in the Us last year, »
