Freaks

“One of us. One of us.”

Still one of the most-disturbing horror movies ever, an 88-year-old curio which no modern-day studio would likely touch.

Employing a cast of real-life carnival sideshow performers, many of whom had real disabilities, it tells a sordid tale of a “normal” woman seducing a dwarf.

Cleopatra, a slinky trapeze artist, fully intends to straight-up murder the rube and make off with his money, but sometimes the best-laid plans get a little twisted.

As in the carnies chase down and gain revenge on our jezebel, brutally transforming her into what is termed a … “human duck.”

Yikes.
