The Best Island Horror Films

The Wicker Man

Devout Christian and Police Sergeant Neil Howie has his faith tested in Robin Hardy’s 1973 film The Wicker Man. From RogerEbert.com:

Howie receives the anonymous letter that draws him to the small island of Summerisle in search of the missing girl, Rowan Morrison, setting the film’s bizarre chain of events in motion. To give Hardy the benefit of the doubt though, Howie does quote from this letter when interrogating townspeople on the island, but “The Wicker Man” is a film that can easily slide into near incoherence at the slightest disruption. The refreshers definitely help you come to an a-ha moment in the movie’s final reel.
