BigLuca: While Labyrinth was a freaky movie, I don't think David Bowie's obsession with Sarah was all that bizarre. He was obviously a representation of her subconscious/imagination and defeating him was statement of choice that she was ready to grow up and accept adult responsibilities - that she wasn't going to be "ruled" by her imaginary worlds anymore. Even as a kid I got that. If you didn't understand that then the entire movie didn't make sense.

I thought it was about a young woman's fear and fascination with bulging male crotches.

I Like Bread: The Woman in Red. The part where the kid gets locked in the coat room overnight.

That's actually The Lady in White. Great movie. Frightening as hell for a kid.

It still amazes me that the creepier thing in this pic is *not* the witch.

blueviking: I think this is what you're talking about....

/creeped me the fark out, too

That's it! Thanks. Here's the fachan I was talking about. Man, it seemed so creepy back then.

Of course, the animated version of The Hobbit scared me too. The goblins were terrifying. Of course, I was only six years old when I saw it, so that may have had something to do with it.

On a trivial note, the king in The Faeries was voiced by Hans Conried, who voiced Thorin in the hobbit. I immediately recognized his voice.

Scaring the crap out of kids is all part of being a parent.

baka-san: Watership Downs, both the book and movie, were never, will never, even a little, be for kids.

Watership Down... You've read the book, you've seen the movie... Now.. Try the stew.
