Something Wicked This Way Comes
Transcript of Something Wicked This Way Comes
2.) Jim and Will learn of the carnival.
3.) The boys sneak out at night to watch the carnival arrive, only to get scared and return home.
4.) They visit the carnival the next day, and find the lightning rod salesman’s bag in the Mirror Maze they were previously afraid of.
5.) They meet Mr. Cooger and Mr. Dark, the founders of the carnival. Mr. Cooger rides the mysterious carousel backwards and becomes younger with every turn.
6.) Mr. Cooger pretended to be Miss Foley’s nephew and watched Jim and Will after they thought he killed the barber. “The nephew” made it look like Will and Jim stole from Miss Foley.
7.) Mr. Cooger returned to the carnival to become older again with the carousel, only for it to malfunction because Jim messed with the control box. He is assumed to be dead of wildly old age.
8.) The boys entered the freak tent, along with some police officers. Mr. Dark brings Mr. Cooger back to life with the electric chair. The police think it’s only an act/illusion.
9.) The blind Dust Witch from the carnival rode in a hot air balloon to Will and Jim’s house to mark their houses. Will chased after and managed to pop her balloon with arrows.
10.) Will and Jim find Miss Foley in town, only to find that she’s been made into a child.
11.) Mr. Dark approached Will’s father. He now has tattoos of Jim and Will on his palms.
12.) Will and Jim go to talk to Will’s father about the circus in the library. The circus apparently comes around every thirty years or so.
13.) Mr. Dark caught the boys and attacked Will’s dad. He brought them all to the carnival.
14.) Will’s father discovered that happiness and laughter could kill the freaks, and killed the dust witch with a bullet which had a smile carved into it. The mirror maze was destroyed by laughter and Will’s father killed Mr. Dark by hugging him.
15.) The freaks ran away, but Jim had been killed on the carousel. Will and his father sang to Jim until he was revived. Will’s father destroyed the carousels control box and the three returned to town. Tweets Will Halloway @thebestfriend

Think I rode the carousel too much #old Jim Nightshade Henry Thomas Will Halloway Freddie Highmore Charles Halloway Jeff Bridges Mr. Dark Jon Hamm Mr. Cooger Corbin Bernsen Salesman Christopher Walken Childhood friends, two boys born near an October midnight, one of light and imagination, one of darkness and reality. Both young, both good, both changed by the arrival of a fatal storm, lightning and rain and curiosity. Unknown adventure, town full of sights, full of belief and of deceit, lonely even when together. Books, wisdom, family. All countered by childish ignorance, running from time through Green Town. Halloween comes early, horror and supernatural and evil become a fatal chorus of fright and chaos. A circus, a carnival, a carousel, a musical calliope, breaking the silence, tempting all with mirrors and magic. Mysterious carousel of life and death, reigning over the young and the old, a deceiving puzzle. Aging is not what it seems. Relationships are tested in the pursuit of happiness, of survival from the pandemonium. Abusive insanity from the illustrated maze of darkness puts them to the test. All it takes is a smile, a laugh, to cure the town, to kill the intruders, to revive friendship, and reign victorious over them.
