Katy from Girl Meets Cinema is hosting Blockbusted Blogathon. She encourages us to write about one B-movie we adore and list the reasons why.
1. Choose a super cheesy blockbuster B-rated movie(s). Genres include: disaster flicks, alien invasions, creature attacks, retro horror, and 80s and 90s action, supernatural.
2. In your post, include a picture(s) of your selection (etc) and reasons why you love that particular movie.(...)
3. Remember this blogathon is not about "bad movies"; it's about our unbreakable bond towards a cheesy blockbuster-esque movie with a setting, story, or character that introduces or deals with something not from this ordinary realm. (...)
Granted the movie I'm choosing is unbelievably awful but I think it is considered a B movie (or Z movie...) - it's a cross between retro horror and supernatural (though to be fair it's just another mangled Hollywood version of Wiccan religion. They'll never learn.).
It's the one, the only The Wicker Man remake, starring Nic Cage.
Here's the official synopsis - While recovering from a tragic accident on the road, the patrolman
Edward Malus receives a letter from his former fiancée Willow, who left
him years ago without any explanation, telling that her daughter Rowan
is missing. Edward travels to the private island of Summerisle, where
Willow lives in an odd community that plant fruits, and she reveals that
Rowan is actually their daughter.
Along his investigation with the
hostile and unhelpful dwellers, Edward discloses that the locals are
pagans, practicing old rituals to improve their harvest, and Rowan is
probably alive and being prepared to be sacrificed. When he locates the
girl, he finds also the dark truth about the wicker man.
If someone asked me for a movie recommendations for comedies, this movie would be there. There are so many bad movies out there but I have yet to see a bad movie that is funnier than this one. I'm still amazed people involved in the production actually thought they were making a horror movie.
The film is a remake of an actual good horror film of the same title. It is however a completely stand alone laugh riot.

I could go on and on but all I can say is - watch this movie.
