*Warning* - *Contains movie spoilers* The 2006 release of the Wicker Man provided some with hopes that it would equate the excellence of the original 1973 version, while others dreaded it would be another flop remake. I was one of those hopeful moviegoers that decided to see if the remake could live up to its original standards. Alas, it failed. The basic story is laid out like this.

Open Water looked like a promising movie at first. It has sharks in it, and beautiful ocean views, so I thought, "how can you go wrong with this?". Unfortunately, I was mistaken.
