Labyrinth (1986)
Not what I had originally planned to watch on Halloween, but it turned out to pretty appropriate. This movie is frakked up. David Bowie is perfect as the Goblin King and the puppetry and stop-motion animation in the film are both awesome, totally blending in with the live action work, but something about this movie is just disturbing. Could be that it's a world consisting entirely of a giant maze, could be that the Goblin King kidnaps babies so that they'll turn into more goblins - I don't know. But it's weird. It's really good, too. This was the last movie Jim Hensen worked on before he died and it's a strangely fitting legacy.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars

  1. This movie scares me in TOO many ways. Especially David Bowie.
