Director Robin Hardy revisits his 1974 cult classic The Wicker Man with this related horror film concerning a cowboy (Henry Garrett) and a gospel singer (Brittania Nicol) who stop in Ireland on a missionary excursion only to come in contact with an aristocrat (Graham McTavish) whose nefarious plans don't include being reformed by their Christian ways. Christopher Lee returns for a small role in this semi-sequel. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
The other review was, in my opinion, overly harsh. It's just OK, and won't get the lasting attention of the original. I liked it better than the Nicholas Cage remake, for example. Unfortunately, it doesn't make sense within paganism, and is more of a pure horror movie.
Some movies provide a strong sequel to an earlier film. Some don't. The Wicker Tree is in that category. It is a real ham fest. You could care less about any of its characters, especially the ludicrous Beth and Steve.
