Any movie in which a Midwestern prairie actually looks more attractive and more interesting than the enchanted land over the rainbow is in big trouble.

It's bleak, creepy, and occasionally terrifying.

Despite the presence of Billina the talking hen, the emphasis on insecurity and peril harks back to the treat-'em-rough days of children's fiction, and the disturbing/comforting ratio tilts conclusively towards the former.

The work of ingenious technicians who seem either not to know what gave the original film its magic, or not to care.
