Something Wicked This Way Comes is a supernatural drama about the lure of temptation and the power of family love. In the film, Will Halloway (Vidal Peterson) and Jim Nightshade (Shawn Carson) are two young boys who grow flush with excitement one day when a carnival comes to their small town. Their enthusiasm is quickly diminished, however, when they meet the sinister head of the carnival, the mysterious Mr. Dark (Jonathan Pryce). Though they are not sure why, the two boys are terrified of him. As the film proceeds, their fear becomes justified as Mr. Dark slowly gains control of everyone in town by offering to fulfill their wildest dreams in exchange for their soul. Eventually, Will's dad, Charles Halloway (Jason Robards) begins to succumb to Mr. Dark's charms and powers as well. Will the two boys find a way to stop Mr. Dark and the evil members of his supernatural carnival before all is lost?
