Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? Because this castle is whack!

Jim Henson and Frank Oz push the art of puppetry to a new level of sophistication with their expensive 1982 fantasy The Dark Crystal.  But does being a fan of Kermit and Fozzie prepare you for a Muppet movie this morbid?  Elfin genocide survivors Jen and Kira take on a depraved breed of Big Birds known as Skeksis, who are using the title gem to drain their planet of life essence.  Have Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob ever stopped crying from the trauma caused by their initial theatrical viewing?
