BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Look at me, watching even more classics! "A circus' beautiful trapeze artist agrees to marry the leader of side-show performers, but his deformed friends discover she is only marrying him for his inheritance. How will they stop him?"
I have had this film on DVD for years, and just never got round to watching it. I had an evening on my own and I thought I would bite the bullet and go for it - especially as it's such a short film. Literally about an hour or so.
I always feel so bad saying I don't really like classic films, but I didn't really like Freaks... I just couldn't really get into it! I found myself kind out watching the clock and actually googling about the people in the film, instead of fully watching it.
That's the thing about Freaks, I found the people in it much more interesting! Honestly, the people in this are hands down the stars of the show - they are incredible. What they go through and have probably gone through due to being different and also how they have overcome their differences - insane! Take Prince Randian, he is in the film able to light a cigarette with no arms, he is a torso! It's incredible to watch and I urge you to Google everyone out of it, just to see it for yourself.
I don't know why I didn't like this film, I love the whole 'freakshow' idea, and I liked the story of this, but I really just could not get into this, no matter how hard I tried. I did like the ending, that infamous chicken ending, but that was about it. If nothing else though, please look into the people behind the film! They deserve to be known.
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
