Misunderstanding Baphomet

At least some analysis of The Wicker Tree finds Baphomet in the branches according to “Climbing THE WICKER TREE: Misunderstanding Baphomet” by John Marrone.

“The film never mentions Baphomet. Only if you decode the hidden imagery in the promotional material, do you find this link to the heart of the plot. When actually speaking of what it is they worship in THE WICKER TREE – the matriarch speaks of the ancient Goddess SULIS.”

“The actual temple of Sulis is in Somerset (UK). Referencing her in THE WICKER TREE makes perfect sense. Just a bit perplexed how Baphomet got pulled into the whole thing. Perhaps as a mix of both the fertility issue, and the anti Christian sentiment of the pagans.”
