    This is Disney’s attempt at a horror film. Still creeps me out at times!

    I actually bought this disc a week ago but haven’t watched it yet. I remember watching it as a kid and enjoying it, though it was far from anything amazing. The reason I bought it though was that I’m reading the series of books it is based on. And oddly enough I just finished the Black Cauldron and I’m on the third one now. So it was one of those in the moment things. BTW, the books are awesome and it is a shame that since Disney owns the rights we will never see proper treatment of these books to film.
