--> '''Wonka''': ''There's no earthly way of knowing... which direction we are going... There's no knowing where we're rowing... or which way the river's flowing... Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? ...Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing... By the fires of hell a-glowing...is the grisly reaper mowing? '''''YES!''''' The danger must be growing, for the rowers... keep on rowing... And they're certainly not showing... ANY '''SIGN''' THAT THEY ARE SLOWING! RRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGHH!''

* Willy Wonka himself is pretty freaky at times -- even -- scratch that, ESPECIALLY -- when portrayed by Creator/GeneWilder. Aside from the aura of barely-veiled madness, the guy engineers some pretty disturbing fates for his ill-mannered guests. (Not that they didn't all ''[[LaserGuidedKarma deserve]]'' it, but it's still disturbing to watch.) His unconcerned attitude toward the horrible demises of his guests are certainly unnerving, along with his general NightmareFetishist behavior. Memorable quotes include:

* Violet getting turned into a blueberry. Sure, it's funny when you're older, but when you're a kid the only thing you can think about is that she might explode, and how the Oompa Loompas are pushing her out of the room, singing a song and seemingly indifferent.

* The fact that we do not see the naughty children at the end, unlike in the book version and the 2005 film. Charlie does ask Wonka if the other children will be alright, and Wonka replies telling him not to worry by the time they leave, they will be restored back to their nasty old selves, but hopefully a little wiser for the wear, but though he would not lie to a child who he gives his factory to, he is not an entirely trustful character.

** The Oompa Loompa song for Violet Beauregarde in particular has a creepy musical arrangement, and the fact that it is the slowest and most somber among the Oompa Loompa songs does not help. The Mike Teevee Oompa Loompa song is also a little strange. The way the words flash during the Augustus Gloop and Veruca Salt Oompa Loompa songs is also a little creepy. It is worse in the book and 2005 film though, because the songs are literally for the children considering their names appear in the songs.



** The Oompa Loompa song also is a little creepy. The way she handles it is also a little unnerving, sure she is scared and shocked, but she seems somewhat calm (similarly this applies to the other brats, Mike enjoyed his punishment, Veruca does not scream when she falls down the chute, and Augustus is nervous but not as jumpy as his 2005 counterpart).



* Meta-Example: The bees that are shown collecting honey for the gum machine? Those were actually wasps. At one point during filming, the colony died and had to be replaced. An unknown party (which may or may not have been Paris Themmen) removed the glass dome, causing the wasps to escape and thus forcing everyone to evacuate the set.
