If they don’t change the ending, it’ll be the only thing that hadn’t changed. My husband (a neopagan scholar of neopaganey things - that is, he’s both a practicing neopagan and studies and teaches at the college level on neopaganism) had several discussions two weeks ago with one of the technical advisors, herself a Wiccan. Turns out the director has gone all “Satanic witchcraft” and upside down pentacle happy. A far cry from an innocent (?) nature worshiping fertility cult. The ambiguity is apparantly gone, replaced with a clear Good (Christian) and Evil (Witchcraft). :rolleyes:
I hope she’s wrong and it all gets worked out in editing. But I don’t have much hope.
The original is simply HUGE in the neopagan community. I can sort of see why - it’s actually the most realistic portrayal of modern neopaganism I’ve ever seen on screen. But there’s that whole killing thing. People try to rationalize it, saying that the cop was warned away many times, making his sacrifice a willing self-sacrifice, to which I call bullshit. If that was informed consent, I’ll go elsewhere for treatment. Yes, they warned him away. They never warned him he might die. So, philisophically, I don’t like how they portray my people, but it is better than The Craft.
