This 2006 remake of the classic 1973 British horror film 'The Wicker Man' is both written and directed by Neil LaBute and stars Nicolas Cage. 

When California highway police officer Edward Malus stops a station wagon to return a doll that had slipped from the girl riding in the back, a runaway truck slams into it, burning both mother and child inside.

Haunted by their faces Edward finally comes round when he receives a letter from a once-fiancée, Willow, telling him that their daughter Rowan is missing. Edward flies out to the island of Summersisle to investigate.

But soon he starts uncovering that nothing is what it seems on this arcane island still trapped in pagan myth. Slowing him down and manipulating his discoveries is Sister Summersisle, an elderly woman who is treated like a goddess amongst the island population. Yet with every step Edward comes closer to finding Rowan, he also comes closer to finding the Wicker Man...
