Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE WICKER MAN is a British horror film which tells the story of a policeman who is sent to investigate the disappearance of a young girl on a remote island where the locals practice a form of religion related to fertility.

Threat

Moderate horror includes undetailed sight of a man being burned alive.

Sex

Sex consists of a dimly-lit sequence, which reveals from a distance couples engaged in sexual activity. The lighting and distance conceal any details, the scene being presented in the context of a fertility ritual.

Nudity

Nudity includes sight of a bare-breasted woman dancing provocatively alone in her room. There is no full frontal nudity at this point.

The film also contains some very mild bad language ('hell', 'damn'), non-sexualised nudity and mild sex references.
