the most traumatizing scenes in film and television are the ones that remain with us all our lives. Disney seems to have a monopoly on some of the most depressing snippets in cinema history: Bambi’s mother dying in a forest fire, Old Yeller getting shot…it’s enough to make even the most hardened individuals shed a tear. for those who grew up in the 1980’s, the movie sequence that tore them apart doesn’t come from a Disney production, but rather from Wolfgang Petersen‘s massively expensive big budget version of The Neverending Story, which only covers the first half of the book and screws up the ending. regardless, it’s still a classic fantasy film even if it does have some flaws. however, it holds up as containing one of the most memorable tear-jerker instances ever, and it’s all thanks to a horse and a swamp.
