1* BoxOfficeBomb: Thanks to writer/director Neil [=LaBute=] creating a World Of {{Narm}} rather than an actual horror movie, critics laughed in his face when they got a chance to see the film, and film failed to even make back its budget. Said budget, $40 million. Box office, $38,755,073. * CreatorBacklash: Creator/NicolasCage: "'I might have known that that movie was meant to be absurd."* InMemoriam: One of the ''weirdest'' examples ever. Creator/NicolasCage dedicated the film to ''Johnny Ramone''. That's right, the '''guitarist of Music/TheRamones'''. [[note]]Johnny introduced Cage to the original movie.[[/note]]* MyGodYouAreSerious: Creator/ChristopherLee, who played Lord Summerisle in the original, got this reaction when he mentioned the (at-that-point-not-yet-made) remake at a press conference.--> '''Christopher Lee:''' I was very happy to be in it; it was a remarkable film. A cult film, with followings all over the world. They're talking about re-making it in America with Nicolas Cage. ''(the audience chuckles)'' No, that's what Creator/{{Universal}} says.[[labelnote:Correction]]Actually, it was Creator/WarnerBros[[/labelnote]][[ They're going to re-make the movie.]]* NotScreenedForCritics: The film's [[{{Narm}} unintentional humor]] might have had something to do with this. Unsurprisingly, it was panned for that reason.-->'''Website/RottenTomatoes critics' consensus:''' Puzzlingly misguided, Neil [=LaBute=]'s update ''The Wicker Man'' struggles against unintentional comedy and fails.* StupidStatementDanceMix: C'mon, [[ you knew there'd be one of these]].* WhatCouldHaveBeen:** Creator/WinonaRyder turned down a role in this film.** Creator/LiamNeeson and Creator/RobertCarlyle were both considered for the lead role.----
