The Marvelous Land of Oz (1987) - News Poster


The History of the Forgotten ‘Wizard of Oz’ Sequel Starring Judy Garland’s Daughter

This summer marked the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz, and it was a big enough occasion that Warner Bros. not only retrofitted the classic fantasy film for a one-week IMAX 3D re-release but also spent $25m on marketing its brief return to theaters. Meanwhile, there’s absolutely no fanfare at all for the movie’s sequel, which also has a special birthday this year. No, I’m not referring to Return to Oz (which likely also won’t get much notice for its 30th anniversary next summer). There is another “Oz” movie that was more directly intended to be an official follow-up to the 1939 version, an animated feature titled Journey Back to Oz, which hit theaters on this day back in 1974.

These are the fifty definitive moments from non-horror films that still made an impact on the “frightening front.” From shocking to creepy to unsettlingly hair raising, these are moments that will stick in your mind long after watching the films, even if they are part of a very different narrative.

The third installment of the one of the greatest movie trilogies of all time is also one of the darkest children’s films ever made.

'Supernatural' recap: The Sonny Days

God, I love episodes with flashbacks. And Tuesday’s episode of Supernatural is a perfect example of why.

In “Bad Boys,” we traveled back into Winchester history to a two-month period during which 16-year-old Dean Winchester found himself living in a home for troubled boys run by an ex-con named Sonny after being caught stealing bread and peanut butter from a local market. (Dean had lost the food money their dad left them in a card game and had resorted to stealing so that Sam wouldn’t go hungry.)

During this time, which we learned was something Dean and his
