All The Horror Special Episode – Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983)

We go to the Dark Carnival for this special episode of season five of Flicks XRayed for All The Horror because we are watching and reviewing Something Wicked This Way Comes. Host, Librarian Tony is joined by co-host Cigar Salesman Ryan and guests Autumn Person Duff, and Lightning Rod Salesman Zach from the podcast Of Gods and Monsters. This week we play a game of Release Year for Horror Movies based on books, The Price is Right and The Flicks Awesome Lodge Word Game for the coveted princess crown. So tune in as we discuss at length about Carnivals, Disney Obscurity, Jonathan Pryce and sooo much more.
