I saw the original, I loved it! I have not seen the remake but I'm extremely surprised to see an A list Hollywood actor, Nick Cage in it. It almost seems poetic as he was in the Freemason movie "National Tresure", this movie Wickerman isn't too far off topic from that one.

Not a big Nick Cage fan, myself (with the exception of Raising Arizona). I am pretty well convinced the only reason he ever got any roles is because his uncle is Francis Ford Coppola. It sure wasn't because of his 'acting' ability!

how about that! makes sense when you think about it. i think his action movies are pure nonsense, like a big mac meal for your brain, but the rest of his stuff is not bad at all. like you said, bringing out the dead, 8mm, snake eyes, all pretty good flicks, i though.

the original is amazing. just watched that 'worst of' bit and it hurts to say that Nicolas Cage made my top 10 actor shite list just now. what an immense display of sadness, but taken not literally funny as fuck indeed!
I just don't understand how good he can be in a flick like Leaving Las Vegas and such a git in this one. Drug (alcohol) problem or something?
