The Toronto International Film Festival has announced Freaks, the debut film from Zach Lipovsky and Adam B Stein, which will World Premiere in the Discovery section at this year’s fest. The two wrote and directed as well as produced the dark sci-fi thriller starring Emile Hirsch and Bruce Dern.
In the inventive mystery, a disturbed father (Hirsch) locks his 7-year-old daughter in a house, warning her of grave dangers outside. But the mysterious Mr. Snowcone (Dern) convinces the girl to escape and join him on a profound quest for family, freedom, and revenge.
We also have our first look at the intriguing feature in two images. This one ticks all the boxes for me. Can’t wait to see more.
