The Wicker Man (1973)

Director: Robin Hardy

Writer: Anthony Shaffer

I think the most shocking thing about seeing this movie for the first time was to learn that it is kind of a musical.  At around the half way point there had been 4 or 5 scenes of singing.  Very unexpected.

I could see a modern audience watching this movie and laughing, and it is a bit dated, but the story line, and especially the finale are creepy enough to make it worth a watch.  The screams of Sergeant Howie as he is being dragged away at the end are pretty horrifying.
