Wizard of Oz was not a horror film. The main characters are not confronted with real tragedy or horrific decisions. There are fanciful characters but none of them really is what specifically constitutes a monster. I would also say that the very nature of the film being a musical works very much against it ever being considered horror.

Are the ideas within the story the sort of thing that could be perceived as scary? Certainly. A man in search of a heart. Another in search of a brain. Witches and witchcraft. Flying monkeys. All have potential to be something scary or twisted but in the 1939 classic, they are not.
BEDLAM STORIES: The Battle For Oz and Wonderland
"Bedlam Stories is the bastard child of David Lynch and Clive Barker. It's haunting artistry will scar you from the inside out!"
- Christopher M. Jimenez, SINFUL CELLULOID

"A wonderfully twisted spin on a beloved tale. It was sick and gruesome and I absolutely loved it. A breath of fresh air for the horror genre."
- Jesse Miller, MORE HORROR

"One of the most terrifying novels you will ever read"
-Martyn Wakefield, BLOOD GUTS
