10. David Bowie's Face Is Hidden Throughout The Film - Labyrinth
Jim Henson's Labyrinth may be one of the most gorgeously crafted fantasy films of all time, but it's also mightily creepy too, topped by a gloriously unsettling performance from David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King.
As if Jareth courting 16-year-old Sarah Williams (Jennifer Connelly) wasn't queasy enough, Labyrinth also features a number of scenes where Jareth's face is sneakily hidden in the environment.
In seven establishing shots throughout Sarah's journey, David Bowie's face is eerily baked into rock faces, trees, and even the ground itself, sure to send a chill running down the spine of anyone who actually notices it.
And while it's often said that the human brain is designed to seek out human faces wherever it can, in this case your mind is most certainly not playing a trick on you. It's entirely the doing of Henson and his skilled crew.
