i fell in love with this film when i saw it as a child and still adore it today. it's much darker than the original oz film and has some fantastic characters - mombi with her collection of heads being one of the best!
another aspect of the film that makes it so special is the way that the two worlds portrayed are parallels of each other; it's not just a childish disney film.
i advise anyone who hasn't seen this to get a copy!

Such a good childrens film- a truely underated classic and, if you have actually read the Oz books (there were 14 of them) you realise that this film matches the orignal vision of L Frank Baum far more than the 1939 version of the Wizard of Oz which deviated quite wildly from the original book. Scary and fun in all the right places it is an excellent family film. I actually prefer it to the 1939 film!

Based on two books in L. Frank Baum's OZ series, Return to Oz is a truly underated film, that is unfortuantly often overlooked by fans of the 1939 Judy Garland film.

The story takes place in the year 1899, unlike the first adventure which apparantly took place in 1938, and once again finds Dorothy on her Kansas farm, unable to sleep. It has been 6 months since she returned from Oz, and now her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry are considering sending her to a mental institution.

Familiar characters from the 1939 film reappear as well as a group of new friends who accompany Dorothy through the new Oz. The look and atmosphere of this movie is very different from the original, and some young children could find some parts of the film quite scary. An example of this is the Wheelers, strange creatures with wheels for hands and feet that chase Dorothy around screaming madly.

Judge the film by itself, instead of making too many comparisons to the masterpiece of the first Oz, and the film is very enjoyable.

The dvd contains no special features, only an interactive menu and english subtitles.

A magical dark sequel to the wizard of Oz with some genuinely disturbing sequences and visuals. The performances are all really good and the new characters we meet are creative and fun. This film maybe wouldn't get made today, Disney and Pixel movies over the last 10 years have been bright, colourful and nowhere in these films does it feel totally hopeless. Children will find Return to Oz quite scary but I think they can handle it. There's some amazing stop motion animation involving some rock monsters as well as good effects with Tik Tok and the other characters. The heads in glass jars and the headless queen combined with the music was as horrifying as any scene you’ll likely see in cinema and will stay with you long after the film is over. The colour palette reflecting the tone of the film is deliberately faded to reflect the atmosphere, a far cry from the Technicolor bright colours used in the original . Faruiza Balk was the perfect choice for this part at the time, with her wide eyed innocent look. As others have said any film which takes out the original supporting characters and features a scene of Dorothy undergoing shock therapy was going to be controversial. Some have even interrupted Dorothy’s dream as a result of the electro-shock therapy. I admire the film for taking it’s own direction and a new style instead of just trying to mimic the original, if all sequels were this good then there wouldn’t be a problem. The use of real sets, locations and practical effects in this film really highlight the problem with using too much poorly animated CGI in films these days. The DVD I bought has good picture and sound and is Widescreen.

I remember watching this as a kid and finding it really scary so wasn't to sure weather to let my 6yr daughter watch it. She is a massive Wizard of Oz fan and was desperate to see this sequel. Have final bit the bullet and brought it for her, watched it last night and wasn't wrong! Overall she really liked it (although Dorerthy looked different), but was uneasy at a few points ine the film. Firstly, when Dorerthy is in the mental asylum about to have electric shock therapy. Then being chased by the wheelies. And finally Mobi's head collection.

Don't be fooled by it's colourful artwork. This film is extremely dark and in many places, very frightening. Dorothy is sent to a hospital, where doctors use harmful electric techinques, to rid children of dreams. Dotothy manages to escape the very gothic hospital during a storm, and awakes in the land of oz. After exploring her surroundings, she finds that the place has been trashed and the emerald city is no more than crumbling ruins. This is the part where parents should intervene, becuase the characters she encounters next are terrifying. The Wheelers are men with wheels for hands and feet. There arms are as long as legs and they race around on all fours, chasing dorothy to dead ends. If the children are brave enough to continue watching, dorothy then meets princess mombie, who is a sort of witch, she has a hall of heads in cabinents and can freely change her head for another one whenever she pleases. In a later scene where dorothy creeps into the corridor, the heads all wake up and begin groaning and wailing her name, alerting the headless princess to the intruder. This again is very frightening. If you saw the film as a child like i did, you too probably had repeated nightmares about the wheelers. Don't let your children suffer this too.
Watch this film with them. They will enjoy it, but there are a few scenes that are far too scary.
