About FREAKS

Celebrate the 90th Anniversary!

Freaks is a fictional film based on the true life experiences of circus sideshow freaks released in 1932. The film was edited for American distribution and banned in England for over 30 years.

However, it has taken on cult status for its campy plot centered around a beautiful trapeze artist named Cleopatra who agrees to marry the leader of a troupe of side-show performers—a midget named Hans. The sideshow "freaks" discover Cleopatra is only interested in Hans' future inheritence and set out to make her...one of them.

Directed by horror film master Tod Browning.

About SHE FREAK

“A sleazy, partial remake of Tod Browning’s FREAKS!” — Michael Weldon, THE PSYCHOTRONIC ENCYCLOPEDIA OF FILM

Fed up with waitressing, Jade Cochran (Claire Brennen) embarks on a new life with a traveling carnival. But she discovers that what lurks behind the curtain doesn’t take too kindly to her backstabbing plans.

A gutter-noir reworking Tod Browning’s FREAKS and a valentine to the carnival lifestyle that defined the career of producer David F. Friedman (BLOOD FEAST), SHE FREAK is a snapshot of life, love, and revenge on the grounds of a seedy carnival in Smalltown, USA -- complete with crackpot monster make-up effects from Harry Thomas (PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE).

Like Devo’s music and Ed Wood’s novels, SHE FREAK creates a synthetic reality that is often preferable to our own.
