The title of the film indicated the chaos and trippy scenery for the Master of the Mystic Arts. Talking about the same Kevin Feige said that there are horrifying sequences in Raiders that he as a little kid would cover his eyes when their faces melted. Or Temple of Doom, of course, or Gremlins, or Poltergeist. Feige said that these are the movies that invented the PG-13 rating, by the way. They were PG and then they were like, "We need another rating." But that is fun. He stated that it is fun to be scared in that way, and not a horrific, torturous way, but a way that is legitimately scary — because Scott Derrickson is quite good at that. But scary in the service of an exhilarating emotion, Feige concluded.
