Oct. 1st: Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983)

something-wicker-1983Such a great movie this is to usher in the season that even it’s title sets the mood for what is to come.

This adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s story of the same name was brought to us by Disney during a period where they produced more mature titles to offset their strictly children’s animation image.

Set in a Green Town Illinois in late October, two young boys encounter Mr. Dark’s Pandemonium Carnival, which enters their burg under the cover of night and sets up with supernatural speed.

Seemingly magical at first, soon Mr. Dark’s carnival exudes a sinister force that seems to infect the whole town and it inhabitants.

Light, creepy and perfectly Halloweeny, the film builds slowly with tons atmosphere and is the perfect way to start any October off right. Something Wicked This Way Comes indeed.

What's Your Pleasure, Sir?
