The Secret of NIMH

The Secret of NIMH

The Secret of NIMH is the epitome of a simple tale, beautifully told with the sort of stunning hand-drawn animation that Walt Disney Animation was known for during the Golden Age of Disney. 


Coincidentally, Don Bluth used to work at Disney, so he knew the tricks of the trade and went ahead with his own animation studio and a dark adaptation of Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, itself based on a real scientific study of rodent societal overpopulation.


Mrs Brisby; mouse, widow, badass single mother, needs to move her family from the farmer's field where she lives and goes on an adventure to find and befriend the Rats of NIMH; super intelligent, highly skilled rodents who her late husband Jonathan helped escape the laboratory where they were all experimented on.


It's beautiful, dark, twisted and delightful nightmare fuel! Don Bluth deserved more appreciation from us all than he ever got.


I would love to hear your thoughts on The Secret of NIMH!
