A run-down old cinema in an unknown town, the Squeam Screen is a horrid place, infested with bats and haunted by ghosts. At the beginning of every episode, the Boy enters and is shown the way to the screening room, and given a box of creepy-crawlies, before being shown a tale to chill his blood . . .
- Uncle Grizzly, the cinema’s owner and the only person to work there.
- Spindleshanks, Uncle Grizzly’s pet spider.
