Talk like this has me thinking that maybe what we're really watching is a
retelling of The Wicker Man.  Audrey's romp in the hay with Cooper (if
consummated) would tend to discredit this notion, but maybe she's trying to
save him.

SPOILER (for the Wicker Man, not for TP):

(Watch me get slaughtered:  The Wicker Man is about a policeman sent to an
island community off the coast of Britain to solve a murder there, but the
populations, led by Christopher Lee, is a pagan community who needs to
sacrifice a virgin.  He thinks that this is the fate that has befallen the
murdered girl, but in reality it is the fate in store for him, he being a
virgin.  Someone PLEASE correct and fill in proper details, it's been a loooong
time since I've seen this movie.)
There, now I've really embarrassed myself.
