      Dont forget about Keanu Reeves uncredited performance as Dog Boy! lol

      I have never done drugs and I never will. I was even the best student in the D.A.R.E. program back in the 80s.

        She Freak is indeed a rip off of Freaks and a very piss poor one at that.

        Freaks is definally in my top 10 movies of all time. Amazing cast too.

          When I was a kid, this movie was legendary. It's a miracle it survived intact, when so many films from that era didn't. I saw it as an adult, and all the reasons for the banning mentioned above do apply. It's damned unsettling now, and must have been nearly unbearable back then. The ending is still one of the most frightening on film. And if you take the social context into consideration, it's still horrifying.

            I just saw this film yesterday and was amazed by how beautifully filmed it was. Tod Browning was a master and the fact that he lost his career is criminal. Anyone who calls themself a horror fan needs to see this film. It is utterly fantastic and a priceless piece of cinematic history.

            and the autumn moon is bright.

                He still got to make Devil Doll and MArk of the Vampire after Freaks though.

                  Yeah, he made those films but they were largely ignored and villified by critics and the public because of Freaks I read somewhere that his name could cause a project to be abandoned by producers just because of his unpopularity. He was a genius and to have them essentially blacklist him was just pathetic.

                      I have always been fascinated by Josephine Joseph, from this Film. So little is known about Her/Him, or even what his true sex was as he was a private person. Did an interesting job in Freaks though.

                        "heres something for your eye" - thats what happened to j.joeseph lol

                        this movie is great in every way. i saw a movie recently that had a scene that suddenly reminded me of freaks,its called calvaire (the ordeal). when i say it reminded me of freaks im not saying it was ripping it off,the scene in calvaire in the bar when the locals start dancing was so unsettling it totally reminded me how i felt when i first saw freaks ,when they first showed the pinheads dancing near the river.

                          Yes,it is a very bad,and very cheap remake.No real freaks just bad make-up.No gore or suspene either.Good for "schlock value"only.

                            It had the same 'shock' ending too.

                              Actually, it wasn't that bad and the ending was pretty brutal





                              I love Freaks but that lil midget boy and girl scare the ever living fuck outa me
                              GOD DAMN NAM'S WHAT HAPPENED! GO GET ME A BEER, BITCH!


                              i'm pretty sure The Reverend Horton Heat is one of the best bands that has ever lived. Psychobilly is the shit, and Rev. puts on one of the best live shows in existence.

                                There's Even Dwarfs Started Small, but it only covers, erm, dwarfs.
                                I'm glad you mentioned, The Freakmaker/Mutations great b-movie starring "Donald Pleasence" - Halloween, "Tom Baker" - Doctor Who with those two legends you know it will rock!
