We’re back after a short winter hiatus with a brand new episode of the Cult Film Club. This month Shawn uses his pick to talk about Jim Henson’s dark, fantasy, puppetry-masterpiece The Dark Crystal from 1982!

We talk about the amazing technical achievement, the great voice and puppetry cast, the departure in storytelling for Henson, and the first team-up of Henson and Brian Froud. We also discuss Trevor Jones’ wonderful score, as well as delving a little bit into the recent Netflix prequel series.
