Nicolas Cage objected to the criticism that the film was unintentionally funny, saying that he and Neil LaBute knowingly made the picture an absurdist black comedy and that it should have been seen and judged as such. See more »
The shells Willow drops on the ground appear to be .45ACP
rounds, which are significantly larger than the 9mm rounds Edward's Beretta pistol would fire. See more »
The name's Malus. Edward Malus. I'd just like a room and a meal. Can you swing it?

Many scenes were cut from the Theatrical Release to get an MPAA rating of PG-13. The Unrated DVD Release adds those scenes back in, however, over 4 minutes of deleted footage is still missing from this version and has never been released publicly. See more »

Definitely pass on this movie
I haven't seen the original, but just wanted to drop a quick note to anyone who happens to scroll down this far: Wicker Man is the worst movie I've seen this year. Maybe even in two years. I wish I could ask the theater for my money back or turn back time to warn myself not to see it.
I'll give it two positive nods: The sarcasm of Cage's character at least got some laughs from me and the scenery of the island was beautiful. Sorry, that's it. Here come the jeers. The movie's plot is only propelled forward because other characters won't give Cage any straight answers--and he puts up with this!!! How this could go on for over an hour of my time(much less days in the movie) is beyond me.
Not to mention that the plot is full of holes. You leave the theater with enough unanswered questions to fill a library. How anyone could read this script and think, "Yes, people should pay $11 to see this shady outline of what a film should look like" is beyond me.
Do not go see this flick. Or even rent it on DVD.
