PSA: 'Labyrinth' Has Officially Just Landed On Netflix

PSA: 'Labyrinth' Has Officially Just Landed On Netflix

Cult classic fantasy adventure Labyrinth has just been added to Netflix - and it's bringing back *all* the nostalgia.

The 1986 movie, starring David Bowie and a teenage Jennifer Connelly, has just landed on the streaming platform and the throwback is exactly what the doctor ordered.

The film begins with a 16-year-old Sarah Williams (Jennifer Connelly) reading from a book called 'The Labyrinth'.

She's horrified when little Toby is actually taken away and Jareth, the Goblin King (David Bowie) arrives, giving her 13 hours to solve is labyrinth before her baby brother is turned into a goblin forever.

'It' Has Just Landed On Netflix

Once making it into the Goblin King's castle, Sarah confronts Jareth while trying to save Toby. Reciting lines from her book which have mirrored her journey up until that point, she struggles to remember the last line until it eventually comes to her.

Finally, she shouts "You have no power over me!" And defeats the Goblin King who returns her and Toby to their home, and turns into a bar owl, flying off.

Upon its release, the film - directed by Jim Henson - was seen as a box office failure, charting at number eight and taking just over half of its $25million budget.

However, the film was received well by critics and currently holds 7.4 stars out of 10 on IMDB and 71% of Rotten Tomatoes.

We can't wait to watch this the second we get the chance.

You can watch Labyrinth on Netflix now. Enjoy!
