10 Classic Scenes from The Dark Crystal

Dark Crystal

Apparently, there’s a sequel to The Dark Crystal currently in the works. I’d normally be incredibly skeptical, but the fact that The Henson Company is responsible for the project gives me a glimmer of hope that it’ll be worth watching. After all, it was the late, great Jim Henson that gave us the original film, a shining beacon of creativity and originality in the otherwise murky sea of visual excrement that passes for entertainment these days.

The Dark Crystal featured a fully-realized universe filled with memorable and terrifying creatures, each with their own cultures and religions. Far from just a “kid’s movie,” The Dark Crystal didn’t pull any punches and at times was downright scary. I think that even amongst the never-ending barrage of CGI in today’s movies, were The Dark Crystal released today, it’d still be a hit.

Take a look at 10 classic scenes from one of the all-time great fantasy films, The Dark Crystal.
