Tod Browning United States, 1932

msmichel's rating of the film Freaks

Essential cinema. Browning's fascination with the circus, carnies and freak shows resulted in this controversial, misunderstood and now classic horror film. The film's power lies in exposing the true monsters whose eventual comeuppance is truly horrifying and disturbing. 'One of us' indeed.
