The location of Summersisle has changed from an Island in Scotland to the coasts of Washington state, USA. This change already takes away crucial atmospheric elements found in the original film. The inhabitants of Summersisle USA still have their Celtic roots (in the form of blonde hair and lame clothes). Nickie Cage cannot understand their backwards and unprogressive ways.
I could go on as to why The Wicker Man is just another bad remake but that is unnecessary. The remake of The Wicker Man is an entertaining look into the destruction of important aspects of film in hopes to receive a lowest common denominator financial success. Nicholas Cage deserves an Oscar for the beatings he gave at Feminist island. Someone needs to drop off some Nazi SS Zombies (like those found in Shock Waves) at Summersisle.
