The Wicker Man (again)

So yesterday we watched the remake that I just bought on cheap DVD. The film is pretty awfull if you know the original. Sometimes the texts are direct quotes from the script of the original, but at other times things are completely changed. For some reason the director added a ‘bee element’ and the matriarchal society of his American Summerisle seems to be a copy of the bee population. This is all new in the story. Trying to pay no heed to the original, this is still not a very good film. The credibility of the story is low, the film is not really exciting and the little information about ‘the old religion’ is extremely thin as if the director wanted to keep some elements that he didn’t understand. My review of the film of some time ago, could have been written today as well.
