In the original (haven't seen the remake)...I have seen and eaten purple potatoes (which can be that colour in the natural state), red corn and carrots of every colour from white to purple. But whatever would you have to do to broad/fava beans to make them turn turquoise?

** Most likely it was a test. The only way they have to know for sure a male is virgin is if he resisted this kind of temptation.

** It is explain in the movie that the order of sacrifices is as follow = Animal, a Human Virgin/Fool and the King. If Howie's sacrifice fails (as the sacrifice of a animal did last year) then the next step is Lord Summerisle as he is the equivalent of the king of the island. Itís never said that the King has to be virgin (which in most pre-Christians societies won't be btw) nor fool of course. Also Howie wasn't a King but was there in the name of the King which was one of the requirement aside from virgin and fool (obviously a police officer in a Constitutional Monarchy is, effectively, a servant of the King).

** The ritualism angle suggested above seems about right. I'd add that if she'd managed to temp him as far as her bedroom, actually seeing her naked would probably break down any resistance he might have left.

** Ejaculation also has a religious meaning, as in "an ejaculatory prayer". There's a very good article about it's use in Catholicism [[http://catholicscot.blogspot.com/2014/03/frequent-ejaculation.html here]]. If serpents really are a metaphor for druids (something to do with serpent tattoos), then Beech Buchanan was protected by their frequent prayers.

Added DiffLines:

* There might not be much worth thinking over about the remake, but it does seem likely that the choice of the bees as a divine symbol has much to do with the female bees being active and dominant while the males exist only for reproduction which is symbolised in this matriarchical society. Anyway lets talk about the original film.
