Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983)

Rating: ***
Cast: Jason Robards Jr., Jonathan Pryce

A creepy tale about a strange circus that comes to town and how it affects the people who attend. The villainous ringmaster (Jonathan Pryce) turns out to be the devil himself, and the admission fee for his carnival is your soul. But a couple of kids manage to outsmart him and he packs up and leaves. Good stuff, based on Ray Bradbury's short story of the same name.
