Alongside The Secret of Nimh (1982), Watership Down (1978), and The Plague Dogs (1983), this is easily considered one of the darkest and most violent animated movies of the late twentieth century. These movies were rated G and PG in the cases of Watership Down (1978) and The Plague Dogs (1983). Additionally, all of these movies were released before the existence of the PG-13 rating.
I dislike the feel of this woods. Creatures that live in a unicorn's forest learn a little magic of their own in time. Mainly concerned with disappearing.
The horn that Mommy Fortuna created for the Unicorn glows and was located in front of the Unicorn's authentic horn. However, when when the Unicorn says "hurry!" to Schmendrick as he is unlocking her cage, we see that her authentic horn, not Mommy Fortuna's horn, is the one that's glowing.
