Return to Oz is terrifying.
When Dorothy (Faruzia Balk) returns to Kansas and tells her Uncle Henry and Aunt Em about her experiences with talking lions and flying monkeys they decide to send her to a mental hospital for electroshock therapy. Thankfully she manages to escape from the hospital and miraculously ends up back in Oz. Unfortunately, Oz has been destroyed by an evil witch who decapitated the most attractive female residents and interchanges their heads with her own.
a movie which still scares my adult self, if only to serve as a reminder of my pivotal childhood fears...

This video is amazing. Billy Corgan had exelent taste in women. Yelena Yemchuk was his girlfriend at the time and she directed the video for "Thirty-Three." It's stop motion animation, can you imagine how laborious this must have been for her? The part with D'arcy on the horse is the best.
