If you're into spooks, sorcery and the undead then Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant will be right up your street. Based on the popular book series, The Saga Of Darren Shan, it tells the tale of well-behaved Darren and his rebellious best friend Steve, whose lives change forever after they visit a travelling freak show. The pair meet a vampire called Larten Crepsley (John C. Reilly) and, following a series of high-octane events, Darren ends up having to leave his home and family and go on the road with the Cirque du Freak. Action-packed supernatural fun.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
