Don’t let the Walt Disney logo on the box fool you – this forgotten gem from 1983 packs a lot of serious creepiness into its PG rating. Based on a Ray Bradbury story (he also penned the screenplay), it’s about two boys who start poking around when a mysterious traveling circus – led by the unsettling Mr. Dark (Jonathan Pryce) - arrives in their sleepy little hamlet. The gray clouds and blustery autumn setting are the perfect Halloween backdrop, and the movie’s imagery will stay with you long after the show’s over.
