Gleefully Pagan Quote of the Day
"But they are... are naked!"
"Naturally! It's much too dangerous to jump through the fire with your clothes on!"

- Sargeant Howie (Edward "The Equalizer" Woodward) & Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee), discussing a bunch of nymphs in THE WICKER MAN (1973)
Christopher Lee considers this the best performance of his career. I think it's wholly incorrect to catagorize this movie as a horror film, but it definitely has it's moments. As always, the less you know going in, the better. But I give it a pretty affirmative thumbs up. Neophyte filmmakers take note: the making of featurette on the DVD is worth the price of admission alone. Check it out.
