Don’t get me wrong, I love fantasy and I applaud creativity, particularly in an industry overrun with remakes and sequels, but 80’s children’s fantasy movies were nightmare fuel! To name a few of the most frightening:
• The Dark Crystal
• Teen Wolf
• Return to Oz (shudder)
That “doggy hell” scene from “All Dogs Go to Heaven”! Why? WHY? I could literally go on forever. I love these movies and I still watch them to this day, but is it any wonder 80’s kids were afraid of their own shadows? Oh, and a big shout out to Judge Doom who killed a cartoon shoe just because… What a dick!
