"In a small American town, a diabolical carnival arrives, granting wishes for the townsfolk, but twisted as only the esteemed Mr. Dark can make them. Can two young boys overcome the worst the devil himself can deal out? Based on the Ray Bradbury book of the same name, this is a Disney live-action kids horror movie. It's quite surprising how dark Disney made this movie to be. The movie is quite frightening, even for adults, much less impressionable children. That being said, I enjoyed every minut"
