The Wicker Man trades in spooks and jump scares for an intriguing mystery and psychological chills, and its fundamental conflict is on one of opposing ideologies and culture shock. While the film remains as a classic, it seems to be one of those over looked gems. Britt Ekland and Rod Stewart had problems with the nude scenes. After Ekland left set, Peters was used to get the shots of Willow dancing. When Ekland learned she had been doubled, she was very upset. One such scene is the 'Dream' sequence which Ian can remember parts of quite clearly.
