“Return to Oz” : A Creepy Disney Movie That is Clearly About Mind Control
The 1985 Disney production Return to Oz is described by many critics as one of the most terrifying children’s movies ever made. While many of its scenes are indeed pure nightmare fodder for young minds, there is one fact that is even more disturbing: The movie is actually about a young girl being subjected to the sadistic world of trauma-based mind control.
Warning: Gigantic spoilers ahead!
When Return to Oz was released in 1985, the movie received a somewhat cold reception. While viewers were expecting a sequel to the 1931 classic The Wizard of Oz, the movie ultimately delivered a much darker experience. While The Wizard of Oz featured munchkins singing about lollipops, Return to Oz features Dorothy being taken to a grimy mental hospital, strapped down on a bed to be electroshocked … and then things get worse.
Described by one movie critic as “bleak, creepy and sometimes terrifying“, Return to Oz is one of these movies that makes one wonder why they were marketed to children. However, when one understands the hidden underlying meaning of the movie, things make more sense. The movie is secretly about trauma-based mind control, the most sadistic practice known to man, so those behind it probably took sadistic pleasure in scaring young viewers around the world.
