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

The 1985 Disney production Return to Oz is considered by many 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.

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 Ozfeatured 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 those 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 causes them to 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 of 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 Ozleft 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.

At the clinic, we see 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 the reflection of another girl. The electroshock machine is the gateway to her alter persona – Ozma.

The head nurse, dressed in a creepy black dress, walks Dorothy to her room.

As Dorothy walks down the dark, scary hallways of the institution, we can hear “patients” screaming and lamenting. This place is nothing less than an MK ULTRA 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 forcibly strapped to a bed.

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

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 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 has 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 a “Wheeler” in Oz.

The head nurse is the “Grande 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 by a loud sound. A great way to give children who watched that movie nightmares.

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 is 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 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 clearly links Tik Tok and the ECT machine by focusing on their winding up key at different points in 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 pumpkin in Dorothy’s room in the clinic becomes her friend Pumpkinhead 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.

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 for the slave to follow during programming.

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.

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 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 her collection of heads … and takes off hers.

Mombi selects a new head.

Not only is this upsetting scene nightmare fodder for children, but it is also 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 ingrained in Dorothy’s inner-world. At first, he appears to her as a rocky face in the wall.

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.

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 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 giant 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.
