Reasons Why Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Is a Horror

Updated on October 7, 2017
Source

This movie has overtime just become more and more not so fun. I lean, not believe, but lean towards the idea that this may be the mind of a possibly deranged individual due to his own characteristics.

I think we may have a horror here, and I am prepared to elaborate on why. Lets explore some concepts shall we.

Recluses

These people live amongst their stuff in their homes. They stay put doing nothing, seeing no one. After work, most people go home. They go back to their family for the comfort of their own place, tomorrow being a workday.

But this guy, this guy Willy Wonka, if that's even his real name, wants to live inside the work place.

He's built a maze in there of differing rooms, spaces, and experiences. It's hard to know what's coming around the next corner in the recluses den if you're a visitor and not a victim.

To put it simply, it's dangerous to venture into the area of a recluse, damn near horrifying. You don't know what's in their house. You don't know what their intentions are. You don't even have an idea where the second exit is besides the front door. This element alone makes this movie a horror.

Sinister

There's nothing kinder than inviting people into your home and offering them foods and drinks.

They sit and walk around sampling away, when all if a sudden they feel a slight twinge in their stomach. Then their stomach starts to grow. It's full to bursting, turning another color like orange, green, or BLUE.

No one wants this experience. No one wants to damn near explode because they sampled something that wasn't quite ready in your house.

The man has products that damage and deforms the human body. That these are around and they look edible is justifying my theory of the mental state of Willy Wonka. He's crazy, insane, freaking nuts.

And people are hard-headed. You could say, wait for the authorities to go and check out the chainsaw and screaming in the woods, and that person goes anyway. Because of this notion, I think Willy Wonka knew someone wasn't going to listen to his warnings, and he wanted to see what would happen to them. Like a psychotic sadist. That Glinda the so-called good witch comes to mind.

Anyway this, my second element, Willy Wonka's sinister plights, makes his Chocolate Factory a place of horrors.

Conjuring - Oompa Loompas

Where did he even go to get these creatures?

The improvisation-making little weird creature-things singing songs about warnings AFTER the bad thing happens. Nobody sang anything BEFORE the person could've made the mistake. Maybe then nobody would've made a mistake.

People were nearly killed, and deformed, and all they can do is sing a song after the incident happened. If they had of been in a gangster flick they would've been the clean-up. Taking the dead bodies to be buried while whistling a tune.

And where did he go to get them again? I don't think he went anywhere. I think he used a séance and summoned them up from a dimension of hell or a dimension adjacent to hell.

His house/workplace may have a dark room with a decorative Victorian floor-rug in it with black candles burning. Where he gets on his knees and performs whatever ritual to summon them. Think about it.

Either way, he went somewhere to get those things. And they're like little sadists too, waiting for people to make mistakes, and then celebrating their pains by song. It's just sick.

This is why the element of the existence of Oompa Loompas just train-wrecks this movie out of fantasy into horror.


Last of Willy Wonka's Candyland of Horrors

Well, I've shown the elements that are most frightening. I personally have come to the conclusion that these are the weirdest and most unquestionably scary things going on in the Chocolate Factory of Willy Wonka. This movie is a horror, and should be put on your list of horrors.

However, as all horrific movies that really aren't supposed to be but are is concerned, it never ceases to surprise me that they always have the most enchanting songs. I love those.

This one is called Pure Imagination. Enjoy.

      TFR @Kelly. Thanks for stopping by, and I agree; the first one was the creepiest one. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? Gonna have to check that out. Thanks again.

      This and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang used to scare me as a child and I would always refuse to watch them. Although, the original film seems to me the more creepier and more sadistic than the newer Johnny Depp version.

      True, good point. Yeah, I didn't think about the fact that you do the classics, which makes it even more interesting! I'm sure you do have some good ones cooking up, I'll be waiting! :-)

      @Cantuhearmescream I think they put a lot of censorship on some things they should and some things they shouldn't. Not that it's inappropriate stuff they shut-out it's just that censoring just ruins the story and message. I haven't touched that one, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, it's just not a classic shocker like the last one. I might, however I do have some others that just need to be elaborated on. This should be a lot of fun. ;->

      They just don't make kid's movies the same anymore... :-)

      Um, to be honest, the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie with Johnny Depp was quite out there... I bet you could do a heck of a hub on that one if you haven't already! :-)

      Classic psychotic freak-out rant. LOL! A shocker. I love that kind of stuff.

      SonQuioey10,

      Even after you decide that maybe you like Willy, at the end of the movie when Charlie goes to collect his prize and Willy sits there with his hat off and hair all a mess... slams his hand on the table and yells at Charlie... Geeze! Freak :-)

      @Cantuhearmescream TFR and thanks for the V-up. Yeah, I definitely remember that boat-ride scene. I remembered thinking it was as if Willy Wonka wanted to use it as something to decide whether he wanted to expose them to either horrors or wonders in there. Thanks for loving it!

      @prettynutjob30 Freddy Kruger absolutely scared me. But it was a fun scare as well as horrific. This movie didn't scare me when I was young, so much went over my head. It's just when I got older, I started noticing these elements of the character. It's still a great movie though. TFR.

      @nighthag Scaring them just for the heck of it is what it felt like for me. I still love it too though. TFR.

      SonQuioye10,

      Okay, you've done it again! :-) You've taken another one of my all time childhood favorite movies and twisted it up on me. I have to admit, I have watched this over and over again, each time it played on cable TV. While I loved it's magic... it always did have a bit of a creepy element to it. Aside from the parts you've mentioned, you know that scene in the boat with the dark, horror images and Willy Wonka singing in a maddening voice? I use to want to leave the room for that part! Loved this!

      Up and Awesome~

      I thought I was the only one who got scared when I watched this movie as a kid, my mom said I use to cry every time her and my sister watched it, the weird thing is Freddy Kruger didn't scare me but this did.

      Ah the good old fashioned belief of scaring our children into doing the right thing, this is a horror movie for children and probably on of the reasons I loved it so much :)

      @Sunny River, I know right. Got to be in a shell to not see the horror in this character. I assure you, we, are not the only ones who feel this. The feeling's probably mutual worldwide. Thanks again for reading.

      This movie has been a horror movie in my mind since I was a kid. Glad I'm not the only one!
