  Darker and more fun sequel

Although the original one is a classic which everyone knows about this is still a very fun film to watch with some great new characters. There's Tick Tock, Jack Pumpkinhead and the Gump. Mombi still freaks me out with her head in the cabinet and the creepy Wheeler's. I think in some ways its better than the original but only because its not a musical so you don't get song every 10mins like the original. This film is defently underrated and I'm sure kids today will enjoy it.

  ONE OF MY FAVOURITE FILMS EVER!!

This had to be one of my favorite films ever. I watched it a lot as i was growing up & even as an adult i still watch it. It's much better than the first oz film. Its a classic film which i would highly recommend.

I remember first seeing this film at christmas when i was 7 years old and thought it was both scary and enchanting.
Jack pumpkinhead was my favorite character, the most fearsome band of character's were the wheeler's.
Since i have grown custom to "thing's that are scary", that emotion has vanished, but instead i cry almost too easily now.
I have just watched this film for the first time in year's, and it still enchant's me.
A glorious tale bought to life by walt disney that will be enjoyed by disney and oz fan's alike.

  Why did they bring you here, Dorothy?

Many people didn't like this sequel because it strayed too far from the original, with it's cute little munchkins, it's catchy songs and amazing technicolor.
Well, I am afraid that was not the true story of the wizard of Oz, they may have got the basics right but Oz is a much scarier place and this second outing shows us that.
When I originally saw this film, the whole world that L. Frank Baum had created, suddenly became bigger and I loved it. At 5 yrs old I remember being scared to death by Mombi and her Halls of Heads.
Ok so it wasn't a musical and none of the original cast was in it, but it never tried to live up to the classic. This was a new breed of Oz.
Give this film another try, you may find that this time you may appreciate it more..........

  Disturbing but Classic

| | See all Bobbie21's reviews (1)

As a child, my mum used to sit me down in front of the TV with the VHS of 'Return to Oz' on multiple different occassions, and I never seemed to complain, in fact, I think I would go as far as to say that I enjoyed it.

However, now, at twenty, every person my age I know that's seen the film has come away scarred for life. We all have deep sated fears of the creatures and places and...well, it's just a warning. People may say that you should let your children watch it, but make sure, as an adult, you watch it first! My flat mates and I all think it's one of the scariest and most disturbing films in existance, and that, we believe, is left over from our childhood.

Nevertheless, it's most certainly a classic.

I used to have 'Return to OZ' on vhs when i was a child and absolutely loved watching it over & over. From Dorothy herself to Billina the chicken, tik tok, the beautiful princess Ozma and the adorable Jack pumpkin head to the scary wheelers and Mombi. I used to hide when she got her heads out!!!
Anyone who hasn't watched this follow up to the Wizard of Oz should give it a whirl... It'll take you back to your childhood when you may of belived in talking chickens and Gump the flying moose head!!!
Slightly dark in places but thoroughly enjoyable fantasy film!!!
And whats better this is the cheapest place I could find on the internet to buy the dvd, so I can watch it over & over again!!!!
