Even though Labyrinth isn’t really a horror movie … it was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I recently found out about all the hidden faces of David Bowie “Jareth” that were hidden in the movie. It’s like looking for hidden Mickeys at Disney World.
1. The first face appears as soon as Sarah enters the Labyrinth (after talking to the little blue worm).
2. After the tunnel cleaners scene, Hoggle and Sarah climb a ladder. Hoggle steps on a weak step and breaks. As he shows the step falling, Jareth’s face appears among the rocks.
3. After talking to the sage, Sarah and Hoggle go through a hedge maze. Jareth’s face is on the floor to the left of the obelisk.
4. In the scene after Sarah releases Ludo, Hoggle is seen leaving and muttering, “She will never go through the Labyrinth.” Jareth’s face appears in the upper left corner.
5. At the beginning of the scene, Jareth gives Hoggle the poisonous peach.
6. Jareth’s face can be seen on the wall of the Bog of Eternal Stench as soon as the edge falls apart.
7. In the forest, Jareth’s face appears in the trees as soon as they leave the Swamp of the Eternal Spirit.
