What Do You Want, Wicker?

The Scotsman reports that all's not well in remake land (that's where Hollywood used to be, remember?). It seems the director of the original cult classic The Wicker Man is not at all pleased with what they're doing in the new version of his creepy film:

In the original, Woodward's character was a virgin, making him ideal for sacrifice. That element has been ditched from the remake, because it was thought that while audiences would accept the idea of an American community that practised human sacrifice, the idea of a grown-up virgin was just too farfetched.

Ah, that sums up America right now, doesn't it? Human sacrifice, no problem, but we'll be sure we let you get your rocks off before we off you.
