Young Christians Beth and Steve, a gospel singer and her cowboy boyfriend, leave Texas to preach door-to-door in Scotland . When, after initial abuse, they are welcomed with joy and elation to Tressock, the border fiefdom of Sir Lachlan Morrison, they assume their hosts simply want to hear more about Jesus. How innocent and wrong they are. Written by
Robin Hardy had originally written the part of Sir Lachlan Morrison for Christopher Lee. However, while filming The Resident (2011), Lee injured his back after tripping over power cables on set. Although extremely disappointed, Hardy cast the actor who was originally playing Beame, Graham McTavish in Lee's role, with actor Clive Russell taking over the part of Beame. Still wanting to include Lee, Hardy quickly wrote a cameo role for him. He appears Sir Lachlan's mentor in a flashback. See more »

This is up there with the worst films ever made. Regardless of whether you are familiar with the original Wicker Man, this film should be avoided like the plague. The plot is paper thin and makes less and less sense as the film goes on. What is a wicker tree? Why a wicker tree? Who would ever build a tree out of wicker? Dubious wicker tree aside this unnecessary rehash of the themes of the seminal 1973 original is also tragically devoid of any of the elements that comprise either art or entertainment.
A failure to generate either atmosphere or audience engagement is aided by an apparent lack of understanding of pace or even basic plotting. The story instead relies on crude caricatures and facile humour more at home in a camp 60s sex comedy. All together it feels lazy and ill though out and it's difficult not to see this as a shameless cash in on the original's success. There are some creditable performances despite the weak source material and you may initially find yourself laughing at the broad innuendo. However you cannot help but realise after 30 minutes that you are making a big mistake by watching this film.
Overall it's extremely hard to care about a film that has seen such poor attention to basic detail. Fans may be tempted to watch this based on their admiration for the original. Please don't.
