    Is this the definitive Wicker Man?

    Even though this is called the "final" cut, I'd have to say no. On the plus side (and it's a very big plus), this disk is subtitled not captioned--a very real consideration when you're hard of hearing and your Samsung TV doesn't support captioning. That being said, however, the Anchor Bay wooden box release with a CD of the soundtrack that came out maybe 20 years ago is, to me, the definitive version. Even though it's captioned, it's longer than the final cut. I can't tell you what the difference is, but the Blu-ray just doesn't feel, well, right. Still, this is an important film and it's good to have it on Blu-ray. If you don't know the movie, you could do worse than getting this edition.

    Iconic and horrifying

    Posted

    An all-singing mishmash of horror and comedy wrapped around a simple mystery narrative: a child has been reported missing on the remote island of Summerisle, and dour policeman Howie (Edward Woodward) is the only one capable of finding out what happened. Ultimately it’s a horror film, but there’s very little violence, no jump scares, and most of the action takes place during the day. It’s playful and sometimes even joyous, but it has an unsettling atmosphere that builds and builds to an iconic (and horrifying) climax.

    In every review the original Wicker Man is mentioned, it is listed as "the Citizen Kane of horror movies." While I wouldn't go that far, it is a fantastic horror movie. The acting, the setting, everything is memorable. This is a film you will not forget once you've seen it. In fact, you should watch it without knowing anything about it. That way you can be surprised. It's not an in your face horror movie. This is a thinking person type of horror film. And it's pretty darn flawless.

    If you are into "B" rated movies - this is not a bad one. If you saw the remake of this movie - this one if far better. The plot is more solid and interesting. Sexuality, nature worship, and even witchcraft are all here - where I thought they were down played in the remake. For those of you who like a "B" rated movie with a plot - here it is. Enjoy.

    its been a movie I've always seen online as a must see. I walked by it in the store and finally decided to grab it and wasn't disappointed. The classics are classics for a reason. Grab it and enjoy!

    This movie was extremely disturbing without resorting to gore or special effects. It's very creepy. The Acting is solid and the story is very original with some clever twists.

    This is a very odd and extremely creepy film. I was uncomfortable at times. Way ahead of it's time. Definitely a must watch for fans of horror and suspense!

    This is a great horror movie. If you only think of the Nic Cage version when you think of this movie, you owe it to yourself to give this a watch.

    This version has added footage and a few scenes that are now back in their proper order, still not the completely uncut but worth the watch.

    This is the original version of the film. The remake isn't as good. I had to add it to my collection.

    The Wicker Man is known as a Nicolas Cage film but watch the original instead. Please.
