Quick. Name the creepiest cartoon of your childhood. If you are a Gen Xer, the ONLY answer is Secret of Nimh. Look at that spooky owl in the picture. SO SPOOKY! Well, get ready for a return to childhood terror; because MGM is remaking it to horrify your children.
Because MGM is evil, they…
secured the rights to develop a theatrical take on Robert C. O’Brien’s enduring children’s classic, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH.
Published in 1971 with accompanying illustrations by Zena Bernstein, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH follows the titular Mrs. Frisby, a recently-widowed field mouse who faces impossible odds in the quest to move her family before a farmer’s plow comes through. The text was famously adapted as an animated film, The Secret of NIMH, by Don Bluth in 1982.
With anti-vaxxors bringing back polio and smallpox, I guess it is time to also revisit this time honored classic from 80’s.

NO. The spookiest Gen X movie definitely was The Dark Crystal. Don’t you remember the Skeksies? http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110801133816/muppet/images/0/06/The_Skeksis.png
