Scared the crap out of me as a kindergartener but...

I first seen this film as a 5 year old way back in 1993 when it was shown to the class in kindergarten. I remember being terrified of this. I didn't see it again until recently and it is a really beautiful looking film and I plan on rewatching the entire film from beginning to end (I didn't get to finish watching it after I found it again). I will say that I can't recommend this for small or sensitive kids because it scared me as a child and I wasn't a sensitive kid but I guess it was the first time I ever encountered some creatively disturbing things with the capturing and freezing of the characters. I actually had the same problem with Star Wars as a kid for a similar scene with Han Solo so I wouldn't recommend it if you have kids that scare at freaky type things like that. That's why I increased the age range to 8 years old. I will give a more in depth review when I can find time to finish the ending.

An adventure

This movie is great. It's not a Disney movie so it didn't receive the credit it truly deserved. I'm really happy I stumbled upon this movie and can't wait to share this with my daughter when she's old enough to watch it.
