Freaks Review

Image for Freaks

When a beautiful trapeze artist gets engaged to the a prominent sideshow performers, his other 'freak' friends in the circus suspect her motives.

★★★★

A famous flop in 1932, this slice of carnival surrealism puts real circus freaks centre stage, seesawing between sensitive and exploitative. Both oddly charming, horrific and crude in parts, it’s a unique experience.
