First to address a few rather ignorant comments. Of course, this is not a family movie. Check the ratings yo. And secondly, while it has elements of horror, it's not a traditional horror movie and so it's your fault if you had expectations of it being scary. If you get past this, you'll find "The Wicker Man" to be one of the strangest and most unsettling cult movies of the 70s. Edward Woodward ("The Equalizer") plays a stiff, Christian police officer who investigates the disappearance of a girl on an island, only to be confronted and challenged by the community's bizarre pagan practices. The late, great Christopher Lee plays the charismatic leader, Britt Ekland is the sexy innkeeper's daughter, and Ingrid Pitt ("The Vampire Lovers") is another villager. For those who like their horror weird, this is a feast. Written by Anthony Shaffer (brother of playwright Peter) and directed by Robin Hardy. A terrible remake with Nic Cage came out some years ago.
