ABOUT THE FILM

Gooble gobble, gooble gobble, we accept her, we accept her, one of us, one of us!” Based on the simple moral that beauty is on the inside comes this inspired, documentary-like tale of circus life. Trapeze artist Cleopatra and strongman Hercules plot to kill the sideshow midget and gain his inheritance. Drawing from past experience working for the circus, DRACULA director Tod Browning cast people with disabilities instead of using special effects and makeup, something unthinkable for the time. Although banned in the U.K. for 30 years, FREAKS was selected for preservation in 1994 by the United States National Film Registry as one of the greatest films of all time.

FORMAT: 35mm

DISTRIBUTOR: Warner Bros.
