THE WICKER MAN
(2006) The 1973 original, which was hailed as a classic of British horror, has an ending that still shocks. The 2006 remake is also riveting but for all the wrong reasons, combining Neil LaBute's trademark misogyny taken reductio ad absurdum with some of the most preposterously hammy acting of Nicolas Cage's career. And that's saying something. The film's high (or low) point comes when Cage, dressed in a bear suit, cold-cocks a young maiden. Yes, you read that right.
