“Not the bees! Not the bees!”

From: The Wicker Man

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Edward Malus

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the “so bad, it’s good” remake of the 1973 horror film, The Wicker Man. Based on the 1967 novel Ritual, The Wicker Man has police officer Edward Malus searching for his missing daughter and, arriving at the last place she was seen, comes across a very strange town.

The quote comes from near the very end of the movie. Edward Malus (played by Nicolas Cage) is captured by the townsfolk and his head is forcefully encased in a helmet. Hearing a disturbing buzzing sound, Malus realizes what is about to happen and yells out the quote.

Geek wisdom: Everyone is afraid of something. Sometimes, the fear can be irrational. Other times, they can be legitimate. The thing to realize is that it’s not fair to ridicule someone when they’re scared of something that doesn’t seem scary because everyone, even yourself, has an irrational fear of something out there.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
