(1985)
Movie Return to Oz
Title Return to Oz
Year 1985
Director Walter Murch
Genre Horror, Adventure, Family, Fantasy, Mystery
Plot – Dorothy Gale has just returned home from Oz and has yet to recover. Her worried parents take her to doctor Worley, who treats her with electroshock. As a result, the clinic catches fire and Dorothy finds herself back in the world of Oz, but this time everything has changed. This is not exactly a children’s movie or, if you want to consider it as such, it is a scary one: without the singing and dancing, it does not have anything to do with its predecessor, the 1939 Victor Fleming movie. As a matter of fact, the best things in this movie are the bad guys.
All actors – Fairuza Balk, Nicol Williamson, Jean Marsh, Piper Laurie, Matt Clark, Michael Sundin, Tim Rose, Sean Barrett, Mak Wilson, Denise Bryer, Brian Henson, Stewart Larange
