Cage Match Round 1: The Wicker Man (2006)

Making up the second half of Round 1 of our Cage Match series – highlighting the films of the one and only Nicolas Cage – is The Wicker Man, a folk horror film from Neil LaBute.

A remake of the iconic 1973 film by Robin Hardy, Cage stars as Edward Malus, a sheriff investigating the disappearance of a young girl. Traveling to the island where she was last seen, he is surprised to learn that it’s home to an all-female, neopagan cult who seem curiously nonchalant about the disappearance. Disturbed but determined, Edward dives deeper into the mystery and the strange community it’s unfolding in.

Featuring one of Cage’s most entertaining performances to date, The Wicker Man has become a camp classic in the years since its initial release.
