Topic: Film Reviews Wicker Man, the remake

(link)

I heard that Hollywood is remaking The Wicker Man... but it's to include killer bees and has been so hacked around that the director of the original wants his name taken off it.

It's quite bizarre to take a film which was successful (in it's own weird way) and to, well, butcher it. As well as the horror-cliché killer bees, the male lead has been made female; the attribute of the main character which made the whole story work has been removed; and the entire story has been relocated.

About the only redeeming feature seems to be that some of the locations do look very spooky indeed.
