Can a full grown woman truly love a MIDGET?

A Classic horror movie to say the least, one of the few brought out in the early 1900's to compete and win against most movies that came out recently, this year even. No special effects were involved in this movie, just humans with deformities under the direction of fellow side show freak, Tod Browning. Watching the special features on this movie shows alot of information, including that Tod Brown... read more

Freaks is a cult-classic for obvious reasons that tight-rope walks a fine line between exploitation and authentic story-telling. At times it veers too heavily toward sensationalistic self-indulgence or misplaced sympathy/false nobility, while at others it strikes an earnest tone, providing a complex study of human behavior at its best and worst. Anyway you slice it, the film ultimately suffers bec... read more

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this movie but since it has a solid reputation, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually,  I have to admit that I was quite blown away by the damned thing. Seriously, I had never seen anything like this before and, while watching this movie,  I was really wondering why they never made more movies about this subject. The problem, if they would make a simil... read more

"Tod Browning’s Freaks has often been cited among the masterpieces of Horror Film. A quite misleading reputation, considering it falls more consistently into the Drama category. The story follows a group of physically impaired people who work at a circus. They have a really tight bond that’s put to test when an outsider seduces a member in order to steal his money. Freaks made quite a rampage when it came out. For the first time, the reality of people with abnormalities was portrayed on the "

"“It seems surprising, but to me, this movie is really about relationships…and the struggle of love. It’s so earnest…. Tod Browning really should have had a bigger career after this.” - Drew Barrymore “It’s not really a horror film. It’s about life just being lived at a different level with a different kind of people…. It’s such a bizarre film for MGM. They were all for glamor, and to be able to create a movie with this atmosphere I think is kind of amazing.” - Robert Osbou"
