THEY SAY: “Even after 30 years, Labyrinth remains a fantasy classic, utilizing its beloved characters, unique creature and set designs, and a charming performance from David Bowie to deliver a memorable film filled with magical elements.” – The Blu Spot, 2016
WE SAY: It’s directed by the creator of the Muppets, George Lucas was executive producer, the script is by a member of Monty Python and it stars one of the greatest rock stars of all time. Suffice to say Labyrinth was always destined to be a cult classic, and it still holds up as a truly original and spellbinding piece of cinema.
