          • Tod Browning, also the director of Dracula and Mark of the Vampire, was a very good film maker. Freaks was one of those movies that you never forgot once you have seen it. I think the story is so well told and the characters are so well developed that it is impossible not to feel something for this movie.

            • One of the best old horror movies, IMO.

              The ending is so messed up.

              • Just finished watching this for the first time today... yeah, I know. I should be ashamed of myself. Anyway... great film. It had a solid story. Quite a few memorable lines in this movie... and that ending. Just plain creepy.

                    There are days when I agree with your sister.

                      I don't think there's been an official remake, but She Freak is very similar, and The Mutations shares some elements, from what I remember.

                          I only became interested when the little-man started to get poisoned through the final act. Pretty intense. Rare authenticity in using many real disabled people.

                            This was very controversial and sadly many of the "freaks" weren't allowed to eat with the the cast and crew and were forced outside. Knowing this makes the movie hit home a little harder.

                              Then screw the disingenuous cherry-picking intro TCM had for this. They portrayed it as the first film where disabled people were portrayed with some sense of normalcy and respect. They forgot to mention that behind the scenes bit.

                                Where did you find out this info? If true, that does say much about the attitudes of the time. It wouldn't surprise me.
