The Wicker Man

Visible crew/equipment: In the director's cut, there's a scene where the bar-owner is tied up to the bed. A few seconds before it cuts away, a crewmember's leg can be seen on the left hand side.

Factual error: While Sgt Howie (dressed as Punch) is being chased by the women, you can see autumn leaves on the grass, though the story is set on the 1st of May.

Will

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Howie is in the cage and praying, one shot shifts to the line of watching islanders. Summerisle walks towards them, turns and signals with his left arm. Cut back to Howie in the cage, then back to the islanders. The same sequence of Summerisle walking and signalling is then shown again.

Question: Why doesn't Howie try to escape when being carried up to the wicker man?

Chosen answer: What's the use? He's surrounded, he can't fight everyone and there's nowhere for him to run.
