Description
Tod Browning's directorial masterpiece "Freaks" (1932) demonstrates the loving side of a chastised group of unique performers. The cult classic follows a circus midget Hans, played by Harry Earles, who falls in love with the 'normal' performer Cleopatra, played by Olga Baclanova. Cleopatra accepts Hans' hand in marriage once she learns of the large fortune he will be inheriting. But her loving facade becomes a sinister scheme in which Hans seeks revenge.

          Comments about this product:

          Upon viewing this film for the first time, I was shocked and amazed at the performances from "real" sideshow performers know as "freaks." The film at the time was banned and later resurfaced when the video market took off. If you have not had a chance to see this, it is well worth the money.

              I watched this movie for the first time while I was sick in bed. It grabbed me and I had to watch to the finish. It is an interesting take on people who look different but are just like you & me. The name "Freaks" is not politically correct but it is a good movie just the same.

                Comments about this product:

                This film is truly unique for me. The fact that rather than use actors who are made up, they used folk from real life. This set this film completely apart for me, and give it an authenticity rarely found in this type of film. Also considering the era in time it came from, truly a remarkable work.
                This is a film I have been looking for a long time, and was so glad to have found it on this site, and be able to add it to my collection. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something interesting and unusual. I would not recommend it for young children .

                          I feel if you and your partner wanted to stay home on a weekend night,it would be fun to make some snacks,etc.and put on Freaks for some comedy and some slight thrills as the actors get more serious and vicious? Its hard to grade the actors skills as they are not all professionals.The actors lines were slow and seemed to wait for thier turn to speak but it only made it more fun for me.I can watch Freak's again and again,it's a scream!
