jack and the witch
It doesn't get much better than this:
Above is a freaky little scene from a wonderful anime film that I watched when I was four or so called Jack and the witch (1967).
I distinctly remember bits of this show, including this clip, it's left an indelible mark on my memory and I'd dearly love to see it again in full but such a desire will need to go unfulfilled for the time being, alas.
The film is about a young man who finds himself transported to another land, which is dominated by witch. There's a bad windmill in there somewhere too. When the windmill turns, something really bad happens. Cant' remember what.
The film is quite dark and wonderfully inventive but I'll probably never get the opportunity to relive the experience because the film on DVD is only available in Japanese which I don't speak.
I remember accidentally taping over a bit of it with about thirty seconds of Astroboy on our Betamax VCR and then hiding under my bed because I thought I'd be belted. Those precious memories. As it was, I didn't get in trouble at all, although I was terribly upset to delete some of the movie.
I blame Sony.
