Nightmare Fuel: Wicked
  • The scene discussing everyone's reaction to Elphaba post-melt down doesn't give much detail, only that it was horrifying, vomit inducing, and that they aren't going back into that room to clean it up any time soon.
  • The bizarre inter species orgy in the philosophy club turns from crude to eerie as the host narrates cryptic prophecies along this.
  • One of Elphaba's first words was after being found outside in the darkness, "horrors."
  • The Wizard's mechanical head contraption in the musical. It was deliberately meant to be creepy and loud.
    The Wizard's head contraption: I am OZ!!! THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE!!!!!
  • The Reveal in the musical that Elphaba turned Boq into the Tin Man (so he could leave despite lacking a heart looks like something out of a horror movie. The music, along with Boq going mad from the revelation, really cements the mood.
  • Ilianora/Nor being "stitched into a finalizing virginity" so that she would never have children who would suffer as she did.
  • An example from the musical: After "As Long As You're Mine," that screaming sound Elphaba hears before she sees the house... Is that supposed to be Nessarose as she's dying? Either way, it's chilling.
