- In Neil LaBute's remake of the 1973 cult british film directed by Robin Hardy, Nicolas Cage stars as a sheriff investigating a young girl's disappearance from an isolated, mysterious island off the coast of Maine. As he digs deeper and uncovers evidence of disturbing pagan rituals, he realizes there's something very strange about the local community.

- Critics' reviews
"Despite its logy, red-herring structure, the film has enough enigma and weirdness that it gradually stirs to life."
"Unlikely to inspire a passionate following similar to the original"
"In the end, LaBute's remake is an interesting idea that never transforms into a particularly satisfying movie."
"LaBute has transformed the eerie, disturbing psychological thriller into an unintentional comedy. At times, 'The Wicker Man' is hilariously bad."
"Turns a cultishly creepy classic into a dull and windy farce"
