Ridley Scott's visually sumptuous take on the ultimate fairy tale is populated by unicorns, goblins, fairies, dwarves and the devil himself (a delicious performance by Tim Curry) in arguably the most incredibly outlandish makeup for an '80s film. With the Lord of Darkness plotting to steal the horns of the unicorns to bring on an eternal night of cold darkness and forcefully marry the princess Lili (Mia Sara), it's up to forest wild child Jack (Tom Cruise) and his friends to save the world and the one he loves. Though a commercial failure when it was released in 1985, Legend has since become a cult favorite, complete with a synthesizer soundtrack by Tangerine Dream.
