Trailer Trash | The Wicker... Tree?

As if the dreadful 2006 remake of cult British classic The Wicker Man (now with added Nicolas Cage) wasn't enough of an abomination, along comes a bloody sequel. Would you credit it?

Cube dwellers beware of bums and breasts:

In truth I shouldn't be giving The Wicker Tree shit. It's not so much a sequel as a companion piece to the original film anyway, and on its side it has Robin Hardy in the big chair - none other than the retiring director of The Wicker Man what was. Plus Christopher Lee's coming back, according to the IMDB.

So there's that.

I don't know if I'm actually looking forward to The Wicker Tree, but with a morbid sense of curiosity I certainly anticipate its impending release this Spring. Frankly it's plum weird to see how few folks' respective radars this film is on.

Get right on that, alright internet? :P

  1. What. The. Fuck. Just. Happened?

    Seriously, though. I'm a native Texan of mixed British ancestry, and this offends both affiliations with its ridiculous stereotypes.

    Of course all Texans are wholesome (naive, ignorant), God fearing folk who speak in heavy Southern accents. Jesus, they could at least get the fucking accent right. And of course ancient Celts were evil, devil worshipers. Everybody knows that.

    And I thought the Nic Cage film was shit. At least the only thing that was offensive about it was the quality (or lack thereof). This sequel shows signs of being every bit as shitty as the predecessor.

    Niall, I may have to borrow this for a special topic over at TSF. I just have too much to say about it. At the very least, it will make next week's Trailer Time.

    Thanks for the emotion inducing post.
