I love the Horned King, but this film will always be the black sheep of Disney.

I remember watching this movie with my sister while growing up. In my opinion, even tough the film as a flop I still think it wasn't "THAT" bad of a film. The animation and voices were great, the plot was a little plan and somewhat. But still, it told a good story. Even tough it's plot wasn't anything like the book (and even tough I never read it before as well), I still think's it's a great film just like the other Disney films.

It is a shame this movie almost bankrupted the stuidios and was in direct competition with the Care bears movie.

I first saw the title of this on the back covers of the few Disney Classics Series books I owned by Mouse Works Books when I was little/much younger. And for years, whenever I went to rent movies, I always noticed there weren't any copies of it available on VHS, DVD or any other home media format at the time. I used to wonder why that was the case. That is, until it was finally brought to video as part of the Masterpiece Collection over a decade later (I bought a copy of it as part of the Gold Collection) and I learned about the somewhat controversial history/background behind its delay. Also at the time, I didn't know that this is an adaptation of the Prydain Chronicles (which I never read, but might purchase and read in the future). Even though I'm not as familiar with the original source, despite that, I still found this version interesting. If for one thing, the fact of learning that this was Disney's attempt at taking a risk by doing something different from its norm: Drawing more teen viewers than those below that demographic and simultaneously sacrificing the younger audience due to they and their parents being scared away by some, certain content that they weren't anticipating. That explained everything to me at last and it was groundbreaking in that sense. One of the exceptional, atypical Disney animated features. I found it quite enjoyable.

His voice is SO haunting that it makes me feel like I'm going to fade away....

I just checked out the Horned King's voice done by John Hurt and it really sounded dark, sinister, and very haunting that it puts a chill down my spine. If he corners me to the back of the wall, it would get me even more frightened by John Hurt's haunting voice.
