The upcoming Alice in Wonderland movie reminded me of something that scared the shit out of me when I was a little kid. It was a TV movie version of Alice in Wonderland, with a scary Jabberwocky scene.
I decided to look it up on YouTube and was excited to find the clip!
From the get-go, it was just as creepy as I remembered... Alice returns to her home, but it's a creepy, empty home. She looks through the mirror to see her family, but they are on the other side of the glass and can't see Alice looking back at them.
Alice sits down, opens a book and begins to read about the Jabberwocky, with jaws that bite and claws that catch... Still creepy.
My heart actually starts racing as I brace myself for the inevitable terror. The lights in the house go dim... Alice turns and screams... The Jabberwocky has arrived!
And it's an f'ing guy in a dragon suit and flashing inverted colors. I can't believe I was actually scared by that once.
