Part of Midnight Movies.
David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly invite you into a magical universe where nothing is what it seems! Babysitting infant step-brother Toby on a weekend night isn’t young Sarah’s (Connelly) idea of fun. Frustrated by his crying, she secretly imagines the Goblins from her favorite book, “The Labyrinth,” carrying Toby away. When her fantasy comes true, a distraught Sarah must enter a maze of illusion to bring Toby back from a kingdom inhabited by mystical creatures and governed by the wicked Goblin King (Bowie).
