Fearsome monsters, grasping hands, and a suggestive tree. Here are 10 fantasy movie moments that scarred us as kids...
Sooner or later, you're going to see a scary movie. Whether you sneak down and watch a horror film on late night television, watch a Nightmare On Elm Street sequel round a friend's house or watch clips of slasher movies on YouTube, horror movies are always out there, waiting in the wings for the young and curious.
But long before most of us graduate to the stage of our lives where we start seeking out 18-rated movies of gore and terror, we reliably encounter scary moments in what might initially seem to be harmless family adventure films.

Atreyu was our favorite child warrior from back in the 80s. His adventures in The Neverending Story were legendary. Unfortunately, those adventures with his horse Artax and luck dragon Falcor came at a huge price. The actor who played Atreyu, Noah Hathaway is still in debt from spinal injuries suffered on set during filming of the 80s classic. During a rehearsal Hathaway Noah was crushed by a rogue horse and it severely damaged his vertebrae. Noah somehow plowed through filming in great pain, but it’s lingered for decades and it’s cost him over $1 million over the course of 30

A neighbor of Noah Hathaway has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to help pay for the actor’s medical bills. According to the information shared by Gregor Gillespie, the actor, known for his portrayal of Atreyu in the 1984 film “The Neverending Story,” recently underwent a major spinal fusion surgery, which he is still recovering from and has left him with a medical bill for $184,138.67.
“Let’s show our support for a true film icon in his hour of need,” Gillespie wrote. “[He] has given so much to our movie heritage, which has inspired generations and will continue to do so for many more years to come.”

Based on the rich fantasy novel by Michael Ende, Wolfgang Peterson’s The NeverEnding Story has endured and flourished as a favorite fantasy film for more than 30 years. In the pivotal role as The Childlike Empress, Tami Stronach embodied ancient, timeless beauty in her performance. Stronach, who was only 10 years old when she was cast in the role, left acting behind to pursue a career in dance and choreography, but she’s recently begun to connect with fans of the film, and in this interview she talks about her very special experience of making the film and what she’s been up to lately.
I can’t believe I’m about to have a conversation with The Childlike Empress!
I’m not really an all-powerful, ageless being, though, right? (Laughing.)
I know, I know. It is what it is. »

Labyrinth will always go down as being one of the classics when it comes to the fantasy genre. Like The Dark Crystal or The Neverending Story, Labyrinth was an exquisite collection of scenery, characters, and storylines that most movies in the 80s had never seen before. Add to that the genius of Jim Henson and his characters, you can see why Labyrinth has remained a classic to this day. You can also see why a reboot is in the works. What’s even more bittersweet about the film is one of its stars, David Bowie. It’s the first movie where we

If you're a fan of Syfy's The Magicians, then you better hold onto your seat, because season two sounds like one crazy ride. While last season's cliffhanger is a huge game changer for the series, it only touches the surface of what's to come.

Forty years ago, Wolfgang Petersen was a successful, 35-year-old TV director back in Germany, who had just made the heist film Vier gegen die Bank (Four Against the Bank), based on the novel The Nixon Recession Caper by Ralph Maloney.
