Freaks

Directed by Tod Browning • 1932 • United States
Starring Wallace Ford, Leila Hyams, Roscoe Ates

“One of us, one of us!” One of the most shocking films of the pre-Code era, Tod Browning’s classic of the macabre was condemned as an “outrageous onslaught upon the feelings, the senses, the brains, and the stomachs of an audience” upon its release and has since lost little of its power to startle and unnerve. Set behind the scenes of a carnival, FREAKS casts real-life sideshow performers as the “attractions” who take their revenge upon the “normal” people who have betrayed them—daring to question who the true “freaks” really are.
