Is the Wizard of Oz Horror?

Would you consider the 1939 movie the Wizard of Oz horror?

I know exactly where natedog's gonna go with this. The tornado. The witch. The monkeys. The forest.

Still, I've been watching this movie ever since I was tiny little tyke, when the only way to see it was in its annual televised appearance. Even seen it on the big screen once. A glorious event. Never once been scared by it.

Nope. Fantasy fairy-tale.

No, but to be honest when I watched it as a little child it did scare me. I mean, essentially you've got a robot with an axe, an evil witch etc. You could definitely argue that it borders on horror for little children.

I think a lot of little kids were a bit scared of it, but the same could be said about the Mumi Trolls (just googled it, looks like you call them the Moomins in English), if any of you are familiar with them... they were very popular here in Scandinavia when I was a kid, but the stories could be pretty scary from a kid's point of view, even though it was a childrens show.

Listening to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" gives me nightmares, so yeah maybe it's horror.

Just kidding. It's a family favorite. Seen it a million times. Not horror. Although some of it's like a bad acid trip, and the subject matter could lend itself to a good horror remake. I've never seen Sam Raimi's version. Maybe there's a horror element?

It's not horror, but witches were the main thing I was scared of as a kid, so I found it terrifying.

The scene where it zooms in on the witch's cackling mug in the crystal ball still makes me uncomfortable.
