Dark Icon vs. The Wizard of OZ?

I see from the incessant stream of commercials on its website that the SciFi channel has a movie coming out called “Tin Man,” which is apparently a re-imagining of the classic Wizard of Oz tale.

It reminded me of a conversation I had with my wife years ago. Went something like this:

Me: “You know, I’ve always thought that the Wizard of Oz had a lot of untapped horror potential. Especially that scarecrow…”
Wife: …shocked silence. then…
Wife: “You wouldn’t dare. That would be SO wrong! That’s a children’s story!”
Me: “Not if I wrote it.”

Well, I DIDN’T… then. But since the SciFi channel brought it up, I’m wondering…

    Oops was that out loud?
