Friday Web (not very) Fun: Return to Oz

Discussing some of the most frightening children’s films ever this morning put me in mind of Return to Oz. It’s got everything – a woman who takes off her head and swaps it, psychiatric experimentation and a very pale Dorothy character. Need more proof? Check out the Wheelers in this clip.

There really is no excuse for posting this clip except for the fact that I don’t want to be the only one suffering nightmares tonight. Sozza.

    Oh my holy god, this movie terrified me when I was little. ESPECIALLY the wheelers!

    I’m so glad someone else’s childhood was marred by this film!

    Yikes! This scared the holy crap out of me as a child.

    Actually, I’ve got loads of Return to Oz stuff at home (no idea why, I think my mum got given it), including mugs, sticker books, all sorts. I should dig that out. It might make my fortune.

    No wonder she ended up in The Craft… that bit where she nicks the key with all the dead-looking heads. It’s traumatising.

    The talking Chicken is the worst bit though. Nobody likes it when dinner starts chatting.

    Return To Oz is 100% the scariest childrens’ film ever. A pumpkin head man. A woman who chops off ladies’ heads and keeps them in a cupboard – and, let’s not forget, the whole thing starts with Dorothy being carted off to a pyschiatric ward for electroshock therapy. I mean *really*!

    This movie terrified me when I first saw it! Those heads in the cupboard still pop up in my nightmares sometimes.
