Labyrinth Gets An Honest Trailer


To provide Screen Junkies with a good excuse to tell you how awesome David Bowie was, they've put together an "Honest Trailer" for the 1986 cult classic, Labyrinth. The legendary British rocker dabbled in acting from time to time and one of the roles most people have chosen to remember him by is Jareth the Goblin King in the Jim Henson-directed and George Lucas-produced fantasy film.

"A magical creature that can only be described as: David Bowie," the narrator says of Jareth in the video. "Who will have you spellbound by his magic tricks, his dancing and his ... Major Tom. And by the hypnotic way he pronounces baby. In a performance so iconic you won't even care that he's playing a kidnapper with the hots for a 16-year-old."

Check out "Honest Trailer - Labyrinth" in the video below.


Labyrinth (1986) - Teenage Sarah is left to babysit her baby brother Toby and he will not stop crying. So Sarah tries to put the baby to sleep by reading him a story. When she accidentally conjures up the Goblin King from the fantasy, he steals the baby and takes him to his castle, which is in the middle of a labyrinth. Now Sarah must solve the labyrinth by midnight, or Toby will be turned into a goblin.
