Fridge Logic

  • The misandrist cult in the remake disposes of all of their male children and only keeps some elderly men around for breeding purposes and to do manual labor. You'd think it'd be a good idea to keep a couple of younger guys around for both, since back muscles and erections wouldn't be nearly as robust in a bunch of enslaved octogenarians, their "workforce" would have to be replaced at some point in the near future, and the kind of docility they'd need from their male slaves would be extremely difficult to indoctrinate into men they might try to take captive from the mainland.

Fridge Brilliance

  • Why did Sister Honey get beat so easily in the remake? She's used to the men on the island not fighting back. She let him hit her so they could spot the sacrifice.
  • The reason this film feels too much like a comedy is because that's the only experience Neil Labute has when it comes to directing movies, since comedies are the only type of movies he's ever directed.
  • The trap that the women of Summersisle, a place where their main product is bees and honey, use in order to lure men in to eventually be sacrificed by means of the Wicker Man by having them impregnate a woman and later lure him in presumably by means of their future daughter? It's a Honey Trap.

How well does it match the trope?
