Remember Something Wicked This Way Comes? When I first watched it, I was like 8 or 9, it scared the hell out of me. The part where that guy squeezes the old man's hands until his knuckles bust open gave me nightmares and to this day is really the only part I remember.

Something about the devil with a canival. I haven't seen it in years. It was made in 1983. Go to to find it.

okay, I found out for you. And believe it or not, it is a Disney movie.

In a small anywhere town in any state in America, two young boys- quiet Will Halloway and somewhat rebellious Jim Nightshade-enjoy the ever-shortening days of autumn. When the boys hear about a strange traveling carnival from a lightning rod salesman, they decide to see what it is all about-but Will is fearful, as most carnivals end their tours after Labor Day. When the ominous Mr. Dark, the Illustrated Man, rides into town on a dark midnight, setting up his massive carnival in a matter of seconds, the boys are both thrilled and terrified. It seems to be just another carnival at first, but it is not before long that the forces of darkness themselves are manifesting from the haunting melodies of the carousel-which can change your age depending on which way you ride it-and the glaring Mirror Maze. With his collection of freaks and oddities, such as the Fat Man, Mr. Electro, and the blind Dust Witch, Dark intends to take control of the town and seize more innocent souls to damn. It will take all the wit and hope of the two boys to save their families and friends, with aid from an unlikely ally-Will's father, the town librarian, who understands more than anyone else that "something wicked this way comes."

It's a Ray Bradbury story, made when Disney were still trying to take risks on their films in the early 80's. It's not too bad, not entirely scary to an adult, but fairly decent. Any film with Jason Robards and Jonathan Pryce can't be all bad!
