I didn't get to watch it on Halloween as I'd planned, but I've finally been able to see The Wicker Man. I'd been wanting to see this cult classic horror fillm for ages. It's about the inhabitants of a Scottish island who practice a form of paganism that includes ritual sacrifice. Though called a "horror" film, I didn't find it particularly scary. It's more creepy than anything else. The islanders, while not exactly good guys, are bawdy and quite funny. And there is some amazing imagery in the film.
Lots of great animal masks in the film.
The badger is carrying a boy made out of bread that was baked in a casket. Yep.
I could do a whole separate post about Lord Summerisle's (Christopher Lee) hair.
