#100 THE WICKERMAN (1973)
GUESS WHO THE VIRGIN SACRIFICE IS?

A strange pagan cult is visited by Sgt. Howie from Scotland Yard, who is investigating the disappearance of a young girl.  He's a strict Christian and is shocked by their open sexuality, nude dancing, and bizarre rituals. It turns out they perform a virgin sacrifice by burning one inside of a giant wicker man, but little does Howie know who that sacrifice is! A very chilling ending that you should have seen coming a mile away, but you're so caught up in the spooky atmosphere that it's still quite a surprise.  The burning Wicker Man is a great image that lives on in Nevada's annual Burning Man festival as well.
