Set in 1905 off the coast of Scotland centered around a cult living in isolation. If you like horror give this a watch if you haven't already.

I'd say it's level of borrowing from Wicker Man was so great it's the only thing that kept me from super-loving it. Still definitely worth a watch though, very well made.
If you like ambient, atmospheric horror, you should be watching Haunting of Hill House.

I adore The Wicker Man (the original, not the BEEEESSSSS), and beyond Island Housing A Religious Cult, I thought they went in enough of a different direction that I stopped comparing the two about 15 minutes in or so.
I have to say, I Cannot Handle Gore/Body Horror, and I watched this with some apprehension since the reviews made a lot about the violence in the second half. But I think they oversold the gore, I didn't have any problems watching this. Or I'm not nearly as grossed out by gore as I tell myself I am.
Oh, hey, you know, at some point in this post I should probably say that I also really liked this movie.

I enjoyed it too. It was messed up, but I enjoyed it more than I usually enjoy horror. I also like Martin Sheen, I think he's great in basically everything he's in. Dan Stevens' overacted in this, but I think it fit a lot with his character, so it worked for me.
