I grew up where they filmed it: Newton Stewart. Britt Eklund didn't have much good to say about the place. Oh well.
You should check out Culzean Castle, just up the coast, where the Lord's home scenes were filmed.
There's a dumb festival on the coast every year, like Jason was saying, where the Wicker Man was built. The feet are still there, but people have looted the "remains".
Shame the festival's music has been shit though...

WickerMan is totally odd and cool. It's finally being released here in Australia on DVD in a few weeks. Perfect pause.

The english band Candidate has recently released an album totally inspired by the Wickerman. The music is instrumental with good acoustics guitar parts. it reflects pretty well the strange mood of the movie.

None of the good old movies sit on video store shelves these days.

That's just too much.

You naughty little boys. I must teach you lesson in womanly wiles...

that's put me right off!!

dude, Britt Eklund is fucking hot!
(in the Wicker Man anyway) she was married to Rod Stewart for awhile.

ha ha ha,
great stuff, but i would rather pass Britt Ekland around, although in the documentary about the making of the movie, she complains that it took ages for her to be convinced about the merits of appearing naked, and when she finally agreed, the producers ended up using a body double.
I have to say Britt ekland's body would have done me fine. I'm not that picky...

I actually found a Wicker Man website that told all about the feet still remaining in Scotland. Iguess in 2000 there was a Wicker Man convention at the same pub that's featured in the movie. Wicker Man fanatics sat around in the pub and passed Wicker Man memorabilia around.

You know, if you go up to Scotland, the feet from the wicker man in the film are still there....

I know that there really isn't a connection between Idaho and the Wicker Man except for maybe the aforementioned from c and Ralph - I was actually just curious to see if anyone else likes this bad ass movie.
RE: The Wicker Man | from RalphRJul 22 2002 - 13:36
Indeed, as well as the not-to-be-overlooked similarity that wicker is a huge industry in Idaho. Baskets, chairs, whatnot.
RE: The Wicker Man | from cJul 22 2002 - 10:55
the connection is that "wicker man" and "idaho" both have the letters "i" and "a" in them, and in each case the "i" comes before the "a". so incredible is this that i cannot accept it as simple coincidence.
RE: The Wicker Man | from marcJul 22 2002 - 10:46
buy the DVD with the new version of the film, it's good, although I personally think that there should be more dancing, fire jumping, virgins.
...and the connection with IDAHO is?

For any of you who have not seen this movie, it is a must. It's a 1970s British, B-horror film and I usually hate these types of movies but for some reason I am obsessed with the Wicker Man - if you have not seen it, PLEASE for your sake rent it - if you ca find it.
