Labyrinth (1986) Revisited – Fantasy Film Review

Jim Henson was made of magic. This magic has spread through many of our childhoods with Sesame Street, the Muppets show, and more. Henson created creatures we had never seen before, but within each was a humanity that shone through every layer of felt or rubber used to make them.

In the 1980s, Henson’s work took an even more fantastic turn, starting with The black crystal (which we will certainly get to) and in 1986 we ventured into a realm that bridged childhood to that time we all knew as teenagers … that disorienting and delicate maze we are in. becoming that dreaded word… adult. Henson did it with the aptly titled film Labyrinth and it would go on to become one of the most beloved films of the ’80s.

So brace yourself as we venture into the Goblin Kings lair where we meet David Bowie’s Crystal Balls (I swear there won’t be many jokes like this… okay, can -Be don’t swear…) an epic gas-filled bog, and Jennifer Connelly looked as wide-eyed as we all would be if David Bowie waltzed us around a dance floor. Let’s dance Magic dance in the years 1986 LABYRINTH.
