Back in 1982, Muppet men Jim Henson and Frank Oz created this imaginative fantasy film and populated it with some of their most memorable puppeteering work. Everything takes place in a dark, ruined world ruled over by the evil, birdlike Skeksis. Naturally, a young orphan boy holds the key to stopping the bad guys and saving his planet. Misunderstood at the time, this scarier, more adult film has garnered a significant cult following in the years since.
