Halloween Special! Tuesday 30 October 8pm

"A lively, entertaining tale combining boyishness and grown-up horror in equal measure." - Janet Maslin, The New York Times

One October ("a rare month for boys") a travelling carnival pulls into a quiet mid-western town. Led by the mysterious Mr Dark, the carnival promises to fulfil your heart's desire - but at what cost? As the whole town gets swept up in the carnival's diabolical charms the lives of two adolescent boys are changed for ever. 

Based on the Ray Bradbury novel, directed by Jack 'The Innocents' Clayton, and staring Jonathan Pryce, Jason Robards and Diane Ladd, Something Wicked This Way Comes is a not only a great lost gem of a movie but, as a Walt Disney production, something of a curio (how this film got a PG rating beggars belief). Quite simply, a Halloween film par excellence.
