Get ready to crowdfund a sequel to the original 'The Wicker Man'

The director of the seminal '70s horror film The Wicker Man is asking all of us to bankroll the final film in his Wicker trilogy. Robin Hardy has launched an Indiegogo campaign asking for film fans to chip in $210,000 to complete The Wrath of the Gods, finishing a series that began in 1973. The story involves a theme park that's based on Norse mythology that, perhaps unsurprisingly, begins to rapidly fall apart when supernatural forces get involved. If we were asked to guess, we'd imagine a sardonic riff on Jurassic Park that -- spoilers -- features someone getting slaughtered in some form of pagan ceremony.

Plenty of other films from brand-name artists have raised their funding in this manner, with Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here and the Veronica Mars movie the two most notable. In addition, wealthy backers with $5,000-plus in the bank can pay to be an extra in the film, as long as they promise to lay off the Edward Woodward impressions. If your only experience of The Wicker Man involves Nicholas Cage shouting incoherently about bees, then watch the original and then decide if you'd like to pay for more of the same.
