Not got good vibes either.

Can't possibly be anywhere as cool as the original.

Roll on Optimum's Blu Ray release.

Let's hope they come up with different artwork for this and not go the lazy route and use the 'released-to-death' current artwork.

The Wicker Man is fast becoming Optimum's equivalent to Anchor Bay's The Evil Dead.

I'm quite positive about The Wicker Tree actually. It's obviously something that both Lee and Hardy are very passionate about and have spent years trying to bring it to fruition. I reckon this might be a pleasant surprise for all of us. I think the premise sounds intriguing, anyway. Obviously, I don't think it could possibly have the power and horror of the finale of the original, but you never know. I'm just glad to see that British horror is still with us, it's about time Britain led the way with horror again, as we did many years ago.

THE WICKER MAN is on the cover of this months "Sight and Sound" as part of an feature that looks at "The Films of Old, Weird Britain" a selection of British films that invoke a magical, rural past or present day. There are related articles on recent art works/films that use pagan images and some of the stranger off shoots of the recent folk music scene.

I hope you're right Daemonia.

Here's an interesting little site.

Bought the latest issue of Sight and Sound because of the 'Weird, old Britain' article, very good stuff. It's also got an interesting interview with and article about Dennis Hopper.

Some interesting soundbites here,and some 'lost cine-footage' of Edward Woodward behind the scenes in Plockton.

Also,listen to Kermode's slaughtering of the remake!

Btw....Mrs Reaps has just began painting this scene.......


BTW2 The Wicker Man Blu Ray (according to Amazon) that's being released in October by Optimum is the Cage travesty!

Let's hope it's the classic original,and this is a mistake.....

Hello Reaps, don't know if your into folk music but I just purchased Rob Young's whopping great 664 paged book on the subject which from the blurb on the back cover includes:

"...the acid folk of Comus, Forest, Mr Fox, and Trees: The Wicker Man and occult folk lore..."

The books looks like a musical companion piece to the recent "Sight and Sound" article on Weird, Old Britain.

Sounds interesting mate.
The soundtrack of The Wicker Man is one of the things that make it so original.
