Our THE WICKER MAN - THE WITCH conversation goes deeper into the two films' shared qualities, including their portrayals of religion and women, and their canny use of (very different types of) music. We'll also get deeper into the question of "is it horror?" and whether that ultimately matters.

Please share your comments, thoughts, and questions about THE WICKER MAN, THE WITCH, or both by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or leaving a short voicemail at (773) 234-9730.
