Details

Yet it would be decades before this widely banned morality play gained acceptance as a cult masterpiece. Tod Browning (1931's DRACULA) directs this landmark movie in which the true freaks are not the story's sideshow performers, but 'normals' who mock and abuse them. Browning, a former circus contortionist, cast real-life sideshow professionals. A living torso who nimbly lights his own cigarette despite having no arms and legs, microcephalics (whom the film calls 'pinheads') - they and others play the big-top troupers who inflict a terrible revenge on a trapeze artist who treats them as subhumans. In 1994, FREAKS was selected for the National Film Registry's archive of cinematic treasures. Features:
  • Commentary by David J. Skal, author of DARK CARNIVAL
  • All-new documentary, FREAKS: SIDESHOW CINEMA
  • 3 alternate endings
