Episode 46: Disney’s Dark Experiment – The Watcher in the Woods & Something Wicked This Way Comes (with guest host Annie!)

We look at two movies from an experimental time at the House of Mouse.  In the 80s, Disney was trying to be seen as more than just animated films and was targeting an older audience.  The result was a small collection of darker films with distinct horror and sci-fi elements.  Along with guest host Annie from Cinema Throwdown, we explore the weird worlds of The Watcher in the Woods and Something Wicked This Way Comes!
