10 Movies That Completely Swap Genre For Just One Scene
9. The Tunnel - Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory
Around the world and home again, thats the sailors way! proclaims Gene Wilders enigmatic chocolate magnate Willy Wonka before steering his unwitting guests away from a fun family frolic into a scene straight from a creepy horror film. As they go down the tunnel, Wonka starts singing about the grizzly reaper, and strange visions start appearing. What is this a freak out?, You cant possibly see where youre going, Wonka! and I am going to be sick are among the reactions from the other characters. The children and parents start screaming and begging Wonka to stop. Clearly were not in a happy-go-lucky movie any more. And then, the boat stops and they all get off. The scene serves an important purpose, though to add a tinge of darkness to the film and suggest that all is not as it seems with Wonka, sewing seeds that will be reaped later on.
