Oh the 80s! For many it was one of the best decades in history, if not the best. It went from a gray era to a decade full of color, fun and freedom. Art was beginning to emerge everywhere. That’s why this was the decade that saw the birth of video games and fantasy movies. Who does not remember the movie Inside the Labyrinth? Or haven’t you seen The Neverending Story? A great culprit for those movies and for many of us getting hooked on fantasy was the incredible Jim Henson.
To this day, it seems that the fantasy style and dark themes that pervaded the small and big screen in the 80s are back in fashion with current series such as Stranger Things or The Dark Crystal.
