The Wicker Man ★½

While The Wicker Man is really atrocious, it manages to entertain the audience with a couple of unintentionally hilarious moments and an “inspired” performance from Nicolas Cage. This is the worst film I’ve seen him in by far. It’s supposed to work as a suspense thriller but apart from one scene that was a bit creepy, nothing is remotely convincing or intriguing. The constant use of flashbacks was annoying and the hallucination sequences turned to be funny instead of disturbing. The performances were horrendous all around and Cage hit another really low point in his career with this work. For the most part, The Wicker Man is boring and just plain terrible, but at least the last portion presents us with some of the most outrageously funny sequences in the history of cinema.
