Wicker-Man Reviews Out: Ouch

We have to admit, we love the original film 1970s with Edward Woodward (from TV's Equalizer) and Christopher Lee (nearly every other movie on the planet). It's creepy story about a modern day cult on a secluded island. Not the greatest thing in the world, but it's still fun to watch. This weekend, a remake opened with Nicholas Cage in the Woodward role. The story's been changed a bit. Ellen Burstyn now takes on the role that Lee's character played in the original film. A review in today's Washington Post, however, was not so kind. Neither was the review in today's New York Times. What's not clear to us, is if that sends the movie into Lair of the White Worm (a good thing) or Warlock (a bad thing) territory.
