4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than I Expected July 31 2009
By Home Studio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Reading the reviews here, I really didn't expect much from Freakshow. But I was surprised by how well it held me, and the number of entertaining little touches in what is obviously a very, very low budget effort.

There's not much in the way of "real" freaks here, although there are genuine human oddities scattered among the cast members. And this has to be the only movie I've ever seen about a traveling carnival that never showed a single crowd scene or, indeed, even a single customer coming to visit (looking at the rickety old ferris wheel they had, I doubt it was approved for people to ride on).

But that being said, the photography and art direction were surprisingly good, the period soundtrack was suitably haunting, and the performances were entertaining (if not always professional). A standout was Christopher Adamson in the role of the ringmaster, dripping with squint-eyed malice as well as dripping from numerous boils and ulcers.

The sex and violence aren't really too graphic until the final "transformation" scene, which is so over the top that it seems grafted on from another movie. I think the movie would actually be stronger if it simply implied what was about to happen to the "victim"...and then showed us the results.

I bumped this up to 4 stars to help counterbalance some of the other reviews, and also because I think that within the constraints of a very low budget, the filmmakers did a nice job. Also, the DVD has some nice bonus features.

So don't expect a lot...but don't necessarily write Freakshow off, either. I'm glad I didn't!

3.0 out of 5 stars YOU ARE EITHER A TEAM MEMBER OR NOT Jan. 6 2014
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I hate to admit I watched this movie...I was watching it for a friend. It is all about what you are into.

A group of "outsiders" are hired by a circus, which is run by all deformed individuals and are called family. Lon (Christopher Adamson) is in charge, a man who has open sores oozing with pus. The outsiders come up with a plan to rob the circus by stealing the gate receipts. When it is discovered Lon has a ton of money including "castles" they opt for plan "B" where Lucy (Rebekah Kochan) the gang's girl comes onto Lon to the point he wants to marry her.

The rest of the family is skeptic of Lucy, as well they should be.

Without giving away any plot spoilers, I will dare to say there are bloody and graphic scenes. Outside of the midget, the deformities appear to be special effects. For example, the guy with no arms, clearly had arms under his shirt.

I think if they had a metal soundtrack, this could have been an excellent grindhouse. As it was, it was just pretty disgusting. If you can make it through 6 "Saw" films and a couple of "Human Centipedes" this one should be a snap.

F-bomb, sex, and nudity (Rebekah Kochan, Amanda Ward)

1.0 out of 5 stars nothing much here March 2 2010
By Topper In Missouri - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
There's nothing in this movie that would make me want to watch it again, or even recommend it to any one. The characters all look like they just rolled around in a pig sty. There are no characters in this movie that make me sympathize with them, they're all villians. The violoence that takes place isn't even all that remarkable or believable. I'm guessing the main reason that this movie was "banned in 43 countries", was because of the last scene. Here's a spoiler so be aware. In the final scene, a woman is skinned alive, has her eye lids ripped out, her toungue cut out, and her arms and legs cut off, and her mouth sewn shut. She is thin put on display as the "living worm girl". Like I said it isn't very believable that someone could live through such torture.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well, it's certainly not the original. June 8 2007
By R. Broz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Basically a rehash of the original (and classic) film FREAKS Freaks only with quite a bit more gore, poor acting and less style. If you are in the mood for this kind of a film and don't like gratuitous gore check out the original and leave this one alone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ummmm...well...... May 6 2007
By NateMonroe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Follows the Todd Browning plot line...but not the care and tastefullness he had used. The circus people aren't really in this very much, just briefly here and there. Contains alot of unneeded gore.
