“Return to Oz” : A Creepy Disney Movie That is Clearly About Mind Control

212

The 1985 Disney production Return to Oz is described by many critics as one of the most terrifying children’s movies ever made. While many of its scenes are indeed pure nightmare fodder for young minds, there is one fact that is even more disturbing: The movie is actually about a young girl being subjected to the sadistic world of trauma-based mind control.

Warning: Gigantic spoilers ahead!

When Return to Oz was released in 1985, the movie received a somewhat cold reception. While viewers were expecting a sequel to the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, the movie ultimately delivered a much darker experience. While The Wizard of Oz featured munchkins singing about lollipops, Return to Oz features Dorothy being taken to a grimy mental hospital, strapped down on a bed to be electroshocked … and then things get worse.

Described by one movie critic as “bleak, creepy and sometimes terrifying“, Return to Oz is one of these movies that makes one wonder why they were marketed to children. However, when one understands the hidden underlying meaning of the movie, things make more sense. The movie is secretly about trauma-based mind control, the most sadistic practice known to man, so those behind it probably took sadistic pleasure in scaring young viewers around the world.

Return to Oz symbolically describes the horrific process of trauma-based mind control as experienced by a young girl. Also known as MKULTRA, mind control is about subjecting victims to trauma that is so intense it cause them dissociate, or disconnect, from reality as a response mechanism to protect their conscious mind. The slave’s handler then creates a programmable alter-persona he can manipulate. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read this article: The Origins and Techniques of Monarch Mind Control). Through fantasy, Return to Oz describes the programming process of a young girl that has dissociated from reality into a world created by her handler.

The Wizard of Oz: The Occult Elite’s Favorite Programming Tool

In my article on The Wizard of Oz, I explained how the movie was used in MKULTRA as a programming tool on mind control slaves. The same way Dorothy goes “over the rainbow” to escape to the Land of Oz, MK slaves, who are being brutally tortured are told to go “over the rainbow” and dissociate from reality to escape the unbearable trauma.

“The Wizard of Oz was chosen in the late 1940s to be the basis for the Illuminati/Intelligence community’s trauma-based total mind control programming. As a way of enhancing the effect of the programming, Monarch slaves are conditioned to place trigger items into their lives.”
– Fritz Springmeier, The Illuminati Formula to Create a Mind Control Slave

While The Wizard of Oz was chosen and twisted to become a programming tool, Return to Oz was custom-made to become an ode to mind control. Based on L. Frank Baum’s The Land of Oz and Ozma of Oz (books 2 and 3 of the series), the Disney production added several key elements to the tale to make it about mind control. For instance, in the books, Dorothy is not sent to a psychiatric ward to get electroshocked. Why was this unsettling bit added to the movie? Return to Oz follows the same basic script as several other movies used in mind control such as Alice in Wonderland, Labyrinth and even Coraline: An inquisitive young girl escapes reality to explore a fantasy land filled with fun and adventure, where no rules apply. However, in the world of MK, that fantasy land is actually a symbol for dissociation – the place where the mind escapes to in order to cope with trauma.

Let’s look at the upsetting strangeness that is Return to Oz.

Return to Oz

The movie begins where The Wizard of Oz left off. Dorothy is in her room and keeps thinking about the magical Land of Oz. Auntie Em is concerned because she hasn’t been able to get a good night’s sleep. What does she do about this situation? She decides to bring her to a “therapist” who specializes in electroshocking his patients back to reason. That’s great parenting right there.

Before Dorothy leaves for the ward, she finds a key with the symbol for Oz. It represents the key to her core personality - her true self.

Once she arrived to the ward, we see the Dr. Worley holding the key. This represents him taking over her psyche and becoming her MK handler.

At the clinic, we see the Dr. Worley holding the key. This represents him taking over her mind and becoming her MK handler.

Dr. Worley tells Dorothy “I know exactly what will cheer you up!” and presents to her his electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) machine.

Dr. Worley tells Dorothy that his machine has eyes and a mouth. This foretells the fact that this machine will become an actual character in the twisted world Oz - the world Dorothy will be taken to while dissociating.

While looking at the machine, Dorothy sees another girl as her reflection. The electroshock machine is the gateway to her alter persona - Ozma - the queen of Oz.

As Dorothy walks down the dark, scary hallways of the institution, we can hear “patients” screaming and lamenting. This place is nothing less than a MKULTRA programming site. Mind control did not exist in the 19th century (the time period where the movie is set), and this entire part of the movie was added by Disney.

After being kept in isolation for a while Dorothy is strapped to a bed - despite the fact that she was against it.

After being kept in isolation for a while, Dorothy is forcibly strapped to a bed.

Dorothy is taken to a room where the head doctor (aka head handler) is waiting with his ECT machine.

These are not headphones, but pods to electroshock poor Dorothy. We are far from the "gumdrops and lollipops" of the original Wizard of Oz movie.

Dorothy is being prepped for electroshock.

Dorothy however appears to be lucky. Right when Dr. Worley turned on the ECT machine, the power goes out. At this point, we are under the impression that Dorothy avoided being electroshocked due to a perfectly timed power outage. However, as the rest of the entire movie will clearly tell us, that is not the case. Dorothy did unfortunately get electroshocked, but it is subtly implied. In fact, the shock was so violent and intense that it caused her to dissociate from reality. The lights going out in the room symbolize her core personality going out. From this point on, Dorothy’s “adventures” actually represent her going through the motions of mind-control programming while being completely dissociated. What happens to Dorothy immediately after the blackout is relevant.

Dorothy's alter persona appears out of nowhere to deliver her.

Dorothy’s alter persona appears out of nowhere to retrieve her.

When Dorothy asks Ozma about the people she hears screaming, Ozma replies that they are “patients who have been damaged and locked in a cellar”. In other words, they are MK slaves.

Oz – The Land of Dissociation

Ozma leads Dorothy to the Land of Oz – which represents the inner-psyche of the dissociated slave. Completely created and manipulated by the handler, Oz causes Dorothy to be a stranger in her own mind. The things she sees and perceives are a thoroughly distorted version of the reality lived by Dorothy at the mental institution.

Several clues indicate that, despite being in the Land of Oz, Dorothy is still physically in the mental institution. First, all of the people we see in the institution exist in the Land of Oz … as a crazy scary version as perceived by an MK slave who have dissociated.

The head nurse of the institution becomes Mombi the evil witch in the land of Oz. The male nurse who tied down Dorothy to a bed is the head of the "wheelers" in Oz.

The head nurse of the institution becomes Mombi the evil witch in the land of Oz. The male nurse who tied down Dorothy to a bed is a “Wheeler” in Oz.

The head nurse is the “Grand Dame” of Illuminati Mind Control, a twisted, sadistic motherly figure.

“An Illuminati Grande Dame will assist the programmers to insure that the proper script is given to the child and that a psychotic break doesn’t occur causing the victim to lose their mind.”
– Fritz Springmeier, The Illuminati Formula to Create a Mind Control Slave

The male nurse is a secondary programmer who is often in charge of torturing and traumatizing the victim. For this reason he is perceived as the head of the Wheelers, a bunch of unpredictable jerks who wear terrifying masks.

This thing pops out of nowhere, accompanied with a loud sound. A great way to give children nightmares.

Dr. Worley is the Nome King in Oz.

Dr. Worley is the Nome King in Oz.

In mind control terms, Dr. Worley is the chief handler, the main programmer of the MK slave. For this reason, Dorothy perceives him as the Nome King. He rules the Land of Oz, because he rules the mind of Dorothy.

There are more clues indicating that Dorothy never left the institution. The implication of these clues are rather sad. The friends she makes in Oz are actually objects seen around the institution at the beginning of the movie. For instance, her “best friend” in Oz is actually the ECT machine.

Tik Tok, Dorothy's lovable mechanical friend is actually the electroshock machine. This implies that Dorothy was brainwashed to the point that the thing that is torturing her is a friend. That is the life of an MK slave.

Tik Tok, Dorothy’s lovable mechanical friend is actually the ECT machine. This implies that Dorothy was programmed in believing that the thing that is torturing her is a friend. That is the life of an MK slave.

The movie provides a clear confirmation of the link between Tik Tok and the electroshock machine by focusing on their winding up key at different points on the movie.

The movie clearly links Tik Tok and the ECT machine by focusing on their winding up key at different points on the movie.

Tik Tok was part of the original book written by L. Frank Baum, but the link with the ECT machine was added by the good people at Disney who were obviously intent on giving this story a disturbing MKULTRA twist.

The screenshot on top is Dorothy sitting in her room inside the institution with a pumpkin. Below is her "friend" Pumpkinhead while she's in Oz.

An Adventure Leading to Mind Control

After fleeing the institution with Ozma, Dorothy ends up in Oz – Oz representing her inner-world, her psyche as a dissociated MK slave. As a stranger in her own head, Dorothy is constantly watched, the same way MK slaves feel watched at all times.

In the land of Oz, rocks, walls and everything else have eyes. They constantly spy on Dorothy and report back to the Nome King. This represents how MK handlers have complete control on the inner-world of MK slaves.

In the land of Oz, rocks, walls and everything else have eyes. They constantly spy on Dorothy and report back to the Nome King.

Dorothy quickly finds the all-important Yellow Brick Road which will lead her to the Emerald City. In the world of mind control, the Yellow Brick Road is the path laid out by the handler for the slave to follow during programming.

“Monarch slaves are taught to “follow the yellow brick road.” No matter what fearful things lie ahead, the Monarch slave must follow the Yellow Brick Road which is set out before them by their master. For some slaves used as track stars, their Yellow Brick Road was the track they had to run. The Yellow Brick Road is the runway in which alters were trained to fly off from to exit their internal world and take the body. The Yellow Brick Road also pertains to the assignment that an alter is given. To follow the Yellow Brick Road is to go down the road that has been assigned by command. The Yellow Brick Road programming is placed into the child’s mind via the Yellow Brick Road of the Wizard of Oz story. Remember the key words, “Follow the Yellow Brick Road.”
– Fritz Springmeier, The Illuminati Formula to Create a Mind Control Slave

Although Dorothy - and the viewers - are lead to believe that the Yellow Brick Road is the road to a land of wonders, it is actually the path the handler has laid out in the slave's inner-world to follow.

The Yellow Brick Road leads Dorothy to an abandoned place where everybody is turned to stone.

Women turned to stone with their heads cut off. This allusion to Monarch Programming is just the beginning of the creep-fest Dorothy is about to witness.

Women turned to stone with their heads cut off.

Bringing the Land of Oz back to life becomes Dorothy’s mission. And that’s what her handler wants her to do.

Mombi – The First Stage of Programming

After shaking off the creepy Wheelers, Dorothy enters the castle of Mombi, the evil witch (who is also the head nurse in the mental institution). Dorothy’s encounter with Mombi implies that Dorothy is being programmed by the head nurse in the clinic.

The entire castle is plastered with mirrors - even the floor.

The entire castle is plastered with mirrors – even the floor.

The castle represents the inner-world of the MK slave that is programmed to mirror itself ad-infinitum.

“Mirrors, and lots of them, are important in occult programming because they make images. They create so many internal images one doesn’t know which way to go. In programming Monarch slaves, mirrors are used a great deal. Within the Monarch slave’s mind, countless mirror images are made. The slave sees thousands of mirrors everywhere in their mind.”
– Ibid.

Mombi shows Dorothy a hall full of heads ... and takes off hers.

Mombi shows Dorothy her collection of heads … and takes off hers.

She then takes a new head and screws it on her neck.

Mombi selects a new head.

Not only is this upsetting scene nightmare fodder for children, it is pure MK symbolism. The collection of heads represents various alter-personas that can be programmed into the slave.

After her traumatic encounter with Mombi, Dorothy escapes the mirrored castle. She is ready for the final stage of her programming : Dealing with the Nome King aka Dr. Worley.

The Nome King

The Nome King lives in a dark underground cave, which indicates how deeply he is engrained in Dorothy’s inner-world. At first, he appears to her as a rocky face in the wall.

The Nome King is litterally embedded in the wall, indicating he is part of the fabric of Dorothy's psyche as a dissociated MK slave.

The Nome King is literally embedded in the wall, indicating he is part of the fabric of Dorothy’s psyche as a dissociated MK slave.

As the handler, he makes all of the rules of her inner-world and controls its structure. We see him tearing down walls, creating doorways and summoning all kinds of things. Like a true handler, he begins by displaying a reasonable, and even compassionate, side.

Dorthy is being comforted by the handler that is programming her.

Dorthy is being comforted by the handler that is programming her.

The Nome King tells Dorothy “I know just the thing to cheer you up!”, which is the same thing Dr. Worley told Dorothy before showing her the ECT machine. Like a true handler, the Nome King proposes a “game” to Dorothy, which is yet another way to further programming. As the game progresses, the Nome King separates himself from the walls and becomes more human.

As Dorothy interacts with the Nome King, he becomes increasingly human which represents the handler becoming more and more present inside the slave's head.

As Dorothy interacts with the Nome King, he becomes increasingly human, which represents the handler becoming increasingly present inside the slave’s head.

The Nome King’s patient and reasonable side however doesn’t last long. Like a true MK handler, once the game is over, he turns into a terrifying monster who has the power to destroy the slave’s entire being.

The Nome King turns into a gigantic rock monster with one eye. As you might know, the symbol of one eye is all-important in the world of Monarch Programming.

The Nome King turns into a gigantic rock monster. Notice that he has one eye. As I stated about 9400 times on this site, the one-eye is all-important in the world of Monarch Programming.

As the Nome King turns into a giant monster, he tears down all of the walls of the cave – turning it into a fiery hellhole. We are symbolically witnessing Dorothy undergoing intense trauma by her handler.

As Dorothy attempts to escape the cave, these demons pop out of the walls and attempt to grab her.

As Dorothy attempts to escape the cave, these demon-like things pop out of the walls and attempt to grab her.

Dorothy manages to escape the cave and manages to bring back the Land of Oz back to life. Did she defeat her foes? While it appears to be the case, she actually only followed the script of her programming. The ultimate goal of MK programming is the split of the core personality into alters – and that’s exactly what happens.

Celebrating the Programming

After defeating the Nome King, the entire Land of Oz takes life. While it appears to be a good thing, it actually represents Dorothy’s dissociative mind becoming fertile soil for the programming of alter personas. During the celebrations, Dorothy faces a mirror and her alter persona, Ozma, appears to her.

Staring at a mirror to see a different person is a powerful MK symbol. And it appears in this movie several times.

Seeing a different person in the mirror is a powerful MK symbol. We see it several times during the movie.

Ozma then touches Dorothy and walks through the mirror into Dorothy's realm.

Ozma then touches Dorothy and walks through the mirror. Dorothy’s core persona split.

As Ozma walks out of the mirror, she becomes “real”. Dorothy’s programming is complete and Ozma, her programmed alter persona is fully present in her mind. Ozma tells Dorothy :

“I will look in on you from time to time, and if you wish to return to Oz, I will make it so.”

In other words, Ozma now part of Dorothy’s being and she can return to the Land of Oz (dissociation) at any time.

Back in Kansas, Dorothy understands that, while she is back to reality, her programming is still within her.

While staring at the mirror (again), Dorothy sees Ozma. This confirms that her personality was effectively split and that it can be triggered at any time by a handler.

While staring at the mirror (again), Dorothy sees Ozma. The alter-persona is part of her life … forever.

 

In Conclusion

While Return to Oz was already considered as one of the scariest movie marketed to children, understanding its underlying meaning makes it simply evil. Through deceitful storytelling, Return to Oz tricks viewers into witnessing the story of young girl being taken to a mental ward to be tortured, traumatized and programmed by sadistic handlers.One can easily picture this movie being used as a programming tool used on actual MK slaves.

Using L. Frank Baum’s books as a primary source, Disney added a great number of new elements to the story to turn it into true ode to mind control. Understanding the true meaning of Return to Oz is understanding the real mindset of Disney and those behind mass media in general. They are the Nome Kings and they see us as Dorothy. Time to stop following the Yellow Brick Road like mindless slaves and make our own path.

Great analysis. I would have never thought twice about the intention behind this movie before reading this article. I always enjoyed watching this as a child and it never frightened me to any extent… I just thought it was strange & creative!

The girl who played Dorothy, Fairuza Balk, also played one of the leading roles in the deeply disturbing movie "The craft" from 1996. In the movie, four girls discover their magic powers and Fairuza plays an evil character. The movie later became the inspiration for tv-serie "Charmed".

Also, isn't it sort of creepy that they picked Piper Laurie to be auntie Em? It seems inappropriate somehow. Maybe more so for the adults watching the movie with their kids who had previously seen Carrie as teenagers. Like it was designed to be a trigger for all age groups. Yuck

I have mentioned here before that I think the phrase "over the rainbow" could esoterically refer to the sephirot Yesod on the Kabbalistic tree of life. It's associated with the tail of a peacock and a phase of alchemy where a rainbow of colors appear. Lest anyone think this is way out of left field, the lyricist Yip Harburg who wrote the lyrics to Over the Rainbow grew up on the Lower East Side of New York City, right in the middle of the greatest concentration of Hasidic Jews in America, the very people who developed and practice Kabbalah.

Well done ! I saw "Return to Oz" when I was about 6, and it was quite a traumatizing experience.

But there is one point that must absolutely be made clear: L. Frank Baum himself, the creator of Oz, was interested in Theosophy. Theosophy was an esoteric system founded by Helena Blavatsky. She influenced guys like… Aleister Crowley.

So "Return to Oz" is not a film which misused innocent books for spiritual purposes. The original stories were already filled with esoteric views.

Thank you, more people need to be aware that the programming of the child's mind is step one for the elite in charge.

I don't see it. The character's in the movie predate the movie by many years. All 14 book by Baum are heartwarming and silly stories about friendship, mostly. In the books Ozma has a mirror where she can any of her friends whenever she wishes to. Just because there is a mirror doesn't mean it correlates with mind control. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar I own this movie, and I remember that in the end, Princess Mombi's Kansas counterpart is taken away to jail. She's bad.

Of course it does. The original stories are not what VC is analyzing. It is the Disney version of one of those stories which has a different meaning. It still falls in line with the type of programs Disney creates. Their version of the story glorifies what has meaning to them (programming and mind control). And programming people through various propoganda and comminication outlets is nothing new (novels and stories by print were used before television and radio were available).

I see a lot of gender programming, as in not letting a kid just BE, always suggesting they play into some existing concept of what it means to be human.

Everybody was in an occult group of some kind back then. Your great grandfather was probably a freemason. Helena's stuff was mostly not taken seriously because it was fantasy… except by Adolf Hitler, of course, who based his made-up occult practices on her work. He was a crazy person though. Baum was fascinated by the possibility of fantasy worlds that actually exist; like parallel universes and such. I would guess he loved her whimsey.

The characters in the books might suggest vanity or otherworldly contact via the mirrors (Jean Cocteau, for example, used mirrors as symbols of the dream world in his great films) but it is the 'overlay' of traumatic, mental ward 'solutions' via electroshock therapy in this film (on a LITTLE GIRL!) – an idea not appearing in the books – that is the source of the dismay. This is business as usual for the heartwarming Disney camp, a 'family company'.
