Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Is The Children’s Version Of Saw

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Is The Children’s Version Of Saw

Who does not like chocolates? Many children and even those people who are young at heart have dreamt of visiting a chocolate factory even once in their lives. What if you have given this opportunity but with your life on the edge, would you still go?

Like any good psychotic killer, in order to understand his murderous tendencies, we have to start with his origins. Tim Burton's version of Willy Wonka has that dark backstory: He was abused.

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Wonka has a wicked father who denies him candy of any sort and makes him wear disfiguring and alienating braces. It is a story of neglect and outright emotional abuse. It paints a picture of an extremely strict perfectionist who negates his son not just the basics of childhood but even the most remedial emotional connection.

This not only motivates Willy Wonka to become the world's best chocolatier, it also turns him into a psychopathic killing machine with an innate distrust of adults and a burning need for revenge.

Years of jealousy and hatred eventually turn him into a child-killing machine who takes revenge on all the kids who have what he didn't. Namely, parents who will accompany them to a chocolate factory and who spoil them with candy. And, more specifically, the ones who don't appreciate it and take it for granted.

Wonka is not necessarily evil; he just has a much messed up scale of morality where he uses his factory as a giant gingerbread house to try and tempt each guilty children to evaluate if they are worthy of living or not by setting up traps and disposing them according to their sins- the seven deadly sins.

Augustus Gloop

Augustus Gloop is eliminated first because of gluttony.

Violet Beauregarde

Violet Beauregarde's sin is lust because she must win everything, at any cost.

Veruca Salt

Veruca Salt is easily the most spoiled of all the children. Her sin is greed.

Mike Teavee

And Mike Teavee was punished because of his pride.

It's basically Dante's Inferno, but with candy.

Willy Wonka

The only deadly sins that Wonka does not punish are vanity, envy, and wrath, the three sins that he himself is guilty of. He's vain about his appearance; he is envious of the children's ability to get anything they want from their parents, as he never had that growing up; and he is most definitely guilty of wrath, tempting the unsuspecting children into his factory and killing them off one at a time.
Charlie Bucket

Wondering why Charlie does not experience those punishments? Because Willy Wonka clearly favor the eventual winner, which is Charlie.

His real goal is to get the other children as close to death as possible in order to judge Charlie's reaction. He needs to know for certain that Charlie is like himself, that he loves candy above all other things, and, more importantly, that he is OK with all of the terrifying defenses put in place to protect his secrets.

Most important of all, he needs someone to continue his systematic punishment of the guilty. Wonka needs to know that, after he has passed away, someone is still carrying out his twisted justice.

It's all part of “the system”: Willy Wonka chose Charlie to be his heir long before he found the money or the golden ticket. And the other golden-ticket holders? Carefully chosen victims. The synopsis? “A crazy chocolate factory owner invites five unsuspecting children into his candy house and forces them to evade various torture devices if they hope to live and claim the ultimate prize.”  And that is why NO child should ever be allowed to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ever again.
