It did a quite good job of gripping me from the start so I stayed awake until the end. Then fell asleep straight afterwards .

Can't agree more with what everyone else has said about it feeling like a lost relic from the past, one of the things that sets up the comparison so well is its lack of explanation. It takes real confidence in your visual story-telling to just not explain any of the pagan ceremonies, or Arthur or anything really. We are left to just place everything togethor piece by piece. Its great.

I'm glad you stayed awake and enjoyed the movie -- it's something I want to watch again to see if there are things I missed on first viewing.

Went into ASDA today to get Wake Wood-none there.
'Excuse me-number 12 in the chart,Wake Wood-do you have any?'

'None there-it must be sold out.'

'Do you have any in stock?'
'Sold out.'

Happy to help? My ARSE!

However,the 'yoof' of today didn't put me off getting this promising looking new chiller.I've ordered it from Amazon.

As a huge fan of The Wicker Man,I'm REALLY looking forward to this.

I just saw this and thought it was very good!!

SPOILER:

Although the bit at the end where they bury Alice you could see what was gonna happen next with the girls hand comming out of the ground. The ending was proper creepy and out there however. Again when he goes to the pharmacy and you see him grab her strand of hair you know what was gonna happen. Still was enjoyable but I dont see how he could take the baby from her womb and she wasnt that pregnant when she got taken so how did the baby grow and would it not be dead

SPOILER:
We don't know how long Louise has been buried, so it is possible that she has been in the ground for eight months with the foetus gestating all the time, so Patrick knows he has three days to perform the Caesarean in order to keep the baby in the real world before losing his wife again.

true
SPOILER:

that does make sense so it must mean they aint dead if the baby still grows and is alive.

Got this review up at DVDBeaver last week, but I did not realize there was thread for the film here: WAKE WOOD (Momentum Pictures).

Watched Wake Wood tonight, and really enjoyed it.

Great spin on a tale of Pagan belief, coupled with the spooky killer child plot.

Some really good performances, and the effects were very well done too. Recommended.

Just watched the German Blu-ray (great movie!), and it is indeed 2.35:1, as opposed to the UK DVD which is 1.78:1.
