Jim Henson's Labyrinth

Jim Henson's Labyrinth is a cult classic film from the 80s starring David Bowie.  When the movie was first released in theaters in 1986 the movie didn't do very well at the box office, but later on became a cult classic.  The movie is a bit different due to its use of puppets, music, and special effects, which may be part of the reason it wasn't well received at first.


The movie's premise is also a bit different, it's essentially about a baby-stealing Goblin King (David Bowie) who steals Sarah's (Jennifer Connelly) younger brother, and she has to outwit him to save her brother.

 Vox explains part of the reason the movie shouldn't work, but does:

The movie is a dark, semi-musical, glam-rock children's movie that seems to combine The Wizard of Oz and a Maurice Sendak story and stars David Bowie plus a cavalcade of puppets. None of it should make a scrap of sense — yet somehow it works within its own strange, singular genre.

If you haven't seen Labyrinth, it is a must-see.  Even if it's not up your alley genre-wise, everyone should experience Labyrinth at least once!
