Product Description

Relive the magic! This newly restored, 2-disc anniversary edition of Jim Henson's LABYRINTH contains an all-new commentary and bonus features that are guaranteed to captivate as never before. David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly invite you into a magical universe where nothing is what it seems! Babysitting infant stepbrother Toby on a weekend night isn't young Sarah's (Connelly) idea of fun. Frustrated by his crying, she secretly imagines the Goblins from her favorite book, LABYRINTH, carrying Toby away. When her fantasy comes true, a distraught Sarah must enter a maze of illusion to bring Toby back from a kingdom inhabited by mystical creatures and governed by the wicked Goblin King (Bowie).

From Amazon.co.uk

Sarah (a teenage Jennifer Connelly) rehearses the role of a fairy-tale queen, performing for her stuffed animals. She is about to discover that the time has come to leave her childhood behind. In real life she has to baby-sit her brother and contend with parents who don't understand her at all. Her petulance leads her to call the goblins to take the baby away, but when they actually do, she realises her responsibility to rescue him. Sarah negotiates the Labyrinth to reach the City of the Goblins and the castle of their king. The king is the only other human in the film and is played by a glam-rocking David Bowie, who performs five of his songs. The rest of the cast are puppets, a wonderful array of Jim Henson's imaginative masterpieces. Henson gives credit to children's author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, and the creatures in the movie will remind Sendak fans of his drawings. The castle of the king is a living M.C. Escher set that adults will enjoy. The film combines the highest standards of art, costume, and set decoration. Like executive producer George Lucas's other fantasies, Labyrinth mixes adventure with lessons about growing up. --Lloyd Chesley, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
'Labyrinth', Henson's 1986 masterpiece is a modern classic for our generation, one of the best pieces of fantasy to grace our screens since 'The Wizard of Oz'.
Revolving around the main character of Sarah (Connelly), an over-imaginative teenager who struggles to find meaning in life beyond her dolls and dressing-up box, the film is essentially a existentialist study of teenage fantasy.
The boundaries between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred one night, when a desperate Sarah calls on the imaginary king of the goblins to take away her relentlessly screaming baby half-brother, Toby.
Unfortunately for Sarah, Jareth the Goblin King (Bowie) has ceased to be merely a figure of her imagination, and appears in the bedroom in place of the child, whom he has transported to his castle in the centre of a giant labyrinth, where goblins and monsters (sometimes friendly, sometimes not, often very comical!)haunt every corner.
It is then up to Sarah to fight her way through the twisting and ever-changing labyrinth to find her young charge, whilst making friends and resisting temptation along the way. Will she manage to overcome her childish, spoilt instincts and learn to think for herself to help others? Or will she succumb to the temptation of having her fantasies fufilled by the charismic Jareth? Only one way to find out - BUY THIS MOVIE!!
Once described as, "a low point in David Bowie's career" this is a great film for adults and children alike, and contrary to narrow-minded belief, is a classic addition to any Bowie fan's collection. Worth watching for the fashion statements alone - "well, laugh!"

I dont really know how to sum up a film which has been my favourite since i was nine and continues to be so. it's just fantabulous, i even have the soundtrack.
Although with age i found it more disturbing to watch, but that has much to do with the tightness of David Bowie's leggings!!
This film is just a great family film, the kind you get out again and again and never tire of. Plus the soundtracks amazing. Do not miss out-BUY IT!!

I first saw Labyrinth when I was 6 and admittedly it scared the hell out of me. However, after seeing it playing in my local video store I decided I had to get it out again, just to see why I was so frightened. I am now 17 and Labyrinth is my favourite film!
The attraction of the film lies in the fact that it is not a simple good v evil type battle - both sides show signs of the opposite eg Sarah's selfishness when she calls on the goblins and Jareth's love for Sarah, which makes the film so much more interesting to watch. That aside, the vast array of different worlds the Labyrinth throws you into, from the column of Helping Hands to The Bog of Eternal Stench and of course Escher's stairs, make watching this movie a total joy because it lets your imagination run wild!
Bowie is phenomenal as Jareth - everything from his stunning costumes, the note of irritated sarcasm in his voice when talking to the not-so-very-bright goblins, and of course the use of the crystals, all come together to create this fascinating enigmatic (and very sexy, as it has been said before!) character.
My favourite sequence in the film has to be the ball sequence that Sarah dreams. Despite this film being marketed as a kid's movie, this sequence I think will capture the hearts of more adults than children for the simple reason it is so beautifully created. It echoes Venetian 18th Century masquerade balls with all their magestic elegance, and the costumes suitably infer this too. But it is the music that really pulls the sequence together - Bowie's lyrics being truly sublime.
The DVD features a 56-minute documentary that gives you an insight into lots of the puppetry techniques, and also how the goblins moved from the original drawings to their final amazing state.

Format: DVD
This film features what is possibly the most incredible creative team ever assembled;

Directed by Jim Henson (Muppets), Produced by George Lucas (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Willow), Screenplay by Terry Jones (Monty Python) and Music by the legend David Bowie.

This film is satisfying viewing in every way, ranging from the life lessons learned by the main character (a young Jennifer Conelly) to the hilarious Bog of Eternal Stench (I defy anyone not to laugh when the stepping stones fart!).

David Bowie brings a wonderful charisma (and some dodgy tights) to the film as the Goblin King and, of course, some great songs too (he should sing with an ensemble of Muppets more often).

There are scary bits (the things that take themselves apart - voiced by Red Dwarf's Danny John Jules - scared the bejesus out of me as a kid), funny bits (I quote: "You're mamma was a fraggin' aardvark!"), touching bits, thoughtful bits and uplifting bits.

The awesomeness (it's a word because I say it is) of this film, despite everything mentioned above, is in no small part due to the efforts of Jim Henson's Creature Shop. From the friendly, furry giant Ludo to the host of comically grotesque goblins, the puppets in the film give it life, colour and most of it's humour.

Anyone who liked the Muppets, 'Dark Crystal', 'Willow' or Monty Python will love this film. Anyone who says they didn't enjoy the aforementioned is either a) a liar or b) one of these sad people who can't lighten up once in a while.

Watch this film!
