Mary: Mr. Barnaby, the factory is not for sale. Papa build this factory. Without it there wouldn't be any toyland.

Barnaby Crookedman: No toy orders from Santa Claus. It's all over toyland, that Tom Piper never returned from the North Pole. I even heard the goblins had him for dinner.

A total nightmare creater.
11 June 2000 | by twobitsSee all my reviews

The first half of the movie was ok and pretty innocent, but then the rest freaked me out. I can't see anything animated that is worse for a child to see. This movie is pure evil and will cause nightmares of demons with glowing red eyes. If you want your child to watch this, you may as well have them also watch The Exorcist.
