It's coming our way again. It's the 35th anniversary of the spooky Disney classic Something Wicked This Way Comes and to celebrate, Mad Monster Movie Night is presenting a screening and Q&A. The 1983 fantasy film, directed by Jack Clayton, was based on a Ray Bradbury novel and its literary feel is clearly no accident. The title was taken from a line in Shakespeare's Macbeth ("By the pricking of my thumbs/Something wicked this way comes") and though it's not a traditional horror film, its air of dread lives up to its ominous name thanks to a stellar cast (Jason Robards, Jonathan Pryce, Diane Ladd and Pam Grier) and a creepy carnival backdrop. Mr. Dark's Pandemonium Carnival, with its haunting, time-warping carousel and requisite freaks and oddities, is more than it seems, and it'll take the will of two young boys to save everyone as the carnival sets its sinister sights on their town as winter and wickedness approach. If you've never seen this one, don't miss it. Q&A to follow will feature cast and crew members Darrell Rooney, Axel Hubert and Scott De Roy.
