Scary Stories for Children

Night falls and Jack dreams about The Spookmaster – a mysterious character who sends soft winged moths to whisper nightmares into children’s ears – nightmares about the things Jack fears the most – a head-mastering headmaster, a demented doctor and a drill-happy dentist. The only way Jack can stop the dreams is by facing his fears!

Told through a thrilling blend of video, puppetry and storytelling, The Spookmaster is a frightfully fun story about families and the journey from adolescence. Recommended for kids aged 7+ who find the Wicked Witch more interesting than Dorothy.
