Saw The Wicker Tree at Frightfest -

I think I've watched La Bute's remake so often to marvel at Cage's performance that I genuinely like it now. It's so far removed form the original (which I love) that I don't equate the two at all.

And just to reiterate Cage is an absolute howl in it.

Very true, mate. If it did, it would be a masterpiece of modern horror and a film for the ages.

Surely 2012 will be the year of this masterpiece on Blu Ray!

Anyone got an insider at Studio Canal?

BTW

What's eyeryone's favourite track from the soundtrack?



Has there ever quite been an OST like Giovanni's ever again?

This is classic.

Willow's song sums the film up perfectly.

I adore this movie. Every scene is like a nock on the head that messes up your senses, every scene has an agenda to shock you, every scene succedes in achieving what it set out to do. **** you head up!
Who currently own's the rights? TWM is long over due for a Blu-ray edition. Maybe a nice Apocalypse Now style collectors edition (which is currently adorning my shelf with much pride) would go down well with the fans?
