Welcome to Everything Trying to Kill You, the comedy podcast that talks about horror movies! In episode 64 about The Wicker Man your hosts Mary Kay, Rachel, and Mary answer important questions like these:
On a scale of 1 to Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted, how unfortunate is our hair on this infinitith day of quarantine? You know that one scene when all the adolescent girls are jumping naked over the fire? What was your hot take during that scene? Remember that Kombucha Girl Vine? Who among us is best at packing and unpacking? Was this movie scary? Was it funny? Was it entertaining? What is “The Salmon of Knowledge?” What can you say, and what can you NOT SAY? Was this the cult of Creed Bratton from The Office? Who started this cult? (SARUMAN’S GRANDFATHER!) What about the religious history that this movie references? What about British Imperialism? Did you know that Summersisle is a real-ass place? Did you know that Scotland has Gaelic, too? Did you also think that the way The Wicker Man depicts paganism is a way to exploit young girls? Who was the ass double for Britt Ekland? What about that candle hand? Did you know that Edward Woodward seeing the Wicker Man on the beach was the actual first time that the actor had seen it? Why did we get no explanation or anticipation of the Wicker Man itself? Is this particular conspiracy very elaborate? What are the similarities between The Wicker Man and The Hunchback of Notre Dame? Is this policeman just really, really bad at his job? What is the point of this movie? What are we supposed to take away from it?
