Something Wicked This Way Comes

Buy Tickets

(1983) dir Jack Clayton w/Vidal Peterson, Shawn Carson, Jason Robards, Jonathan Pryce, Diane Ladd, Royal Dano, Pam Grier [95 min; 35mm]
Simply put, one of the most chilling and unnerving children’s films ever made, SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COME can be blamed for a generation’s worth of bad dreams. And no wonder, based on Ray Bradbury’s equally unsettling novel, this film features Jonathan Pryce as the sinister Mr. Dark, the leader of a shadowy travelling carnival where dreams are fulfilled and souls are stolen. When two young boys uncover the truth of the carnival, they take it upon themselves to stop Dark once and for all.
