Before You See THE DARK CRYSTAL Prequel: Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Aughra

Horror fans of a certain age have nothing but fond memories for The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson and Frank Oz’s beautiful yet terrifying anomaly released in 1982. Though marketed towards children, it was a complex and genuinely horrifying story that nonetheless promoted courage and ended in triumph.

Now that Netflix is on the verge of releasing a prequel series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, interest in the original film is surging, with many newer horror aficionados only now familiarizing themselves with the film’s lore. In an effort to acquaint those less familiar with the world of The Dark Crystal and the menagerie of characters that inhabit it, Mr. H will be producing a series of videos exploring key aspects of the mythology.
