While recovering from a tragic accident on the road, the patrolman Edward Malus receives a letter from his former fiancée Willow, who left him years ago without any explanation, telling that her daughter Rowan is missing. Edward travels to the private island of Summerisle, where Willow lives in an odd community that plant fruits, and she reveals that Rowan is actually their daughter. Along his investigation with the hostile and unhelpful dwellers, Edward discloses that the locals are pagans, practicing old rituals to improve their harvest, and Rowan is probably alive and being prepared to be sacrificed. When he locates the girl, he finds also the dark truth about the wicker man. Written by

The downstairs interior of Sister Summersisle's home is actually a women's club in Vancouver. The fancy wallpaper seen along the staircase was on a wall added by the art department to cover an open doorway leading to a large modern kitchen. The upstairs portion of the house was a set. See more »
After swimming to the Sea Plane, in his boxer short's and t-shirt, Edward swims back to the dock where he is next seen fully dressed and totally dry, except for his hair. Then, while walking up the lane, there is absolutely no water bleeding through to the outer clothing from the soaked undies beneath. Evidence to him having these on underneath is that he is wearing the same boxer's / t-shirt combo after the bee attack when he is dressing after his recovery. See more »
what ever you do do not waste your time on this pointless. movie. A remake that did not need to be retold. Everyone coming out of the theater had the same comments. Worst movie I ever saw. Save your time and money!!!
Nicgolas Cage was biking down hills, swimming in murky water and rolling down hills while being attacked by bees but yet his suit was still perfectly pressed and shirt crisp white until the very last scene.
Although a good cast with Ellen Bernstein and Cage the acting was just as unbelievable as the movie itself. It is amazing how good actors can do such bad movies. Don't they get a copy of the script first. If you still have any interest at all in seeing the movie at the very least wait for it to come out on DVD.
