Walt Disney Pictures "Return to Oz"

This is Walt Disney Pictures' "Return To Oz", a second adventure for Dorothy, based on L. Frank Baum's "Oz" books. Pictured is the VHS box for the movie, which I bought at an NFFC Disneyana Convention about 2 years ago. In this movie "sequel" to "The Wizard of Oz", Dorothy again finds herself going back to Oz, and gets into some pretty scary moments. Dorothy is played by Fairuza Balk. I had never seen this film until about 3 weeks ago, and it's pretty interesting and scary. It's not a musical like the old MGM movie, though, and it's not trying to pretend to be the MGM movie, either. My cousin told me that it was kind of unsettling compared to the MGM version, and she was definitely right.
