Jeremy of We Got This Covered wrote, "Robin Hardy‘s re-imaging of the original Wicker Man film titled The Wicker Tree is an abomination to film. It’s not scary or bloody enough to be considered a horror film and it’s certainly not funny enough to be classified as a comedy. It sort of sits between the two, existing just barely. The only entertainment that comes from this movie is the unexpected music numbers, followed by some really weird sex and an even odder climax. The Wicker Tree feels low-budget, from its overacting (or none-acting) to its cringe-worthy dialogue. Just about everything feels like something from the Lifetime Network or the SyFy channel."
