Freaked

Beach Blanket Bingo meets The Evil Dead.

That’s how lead actor/co-writer/co-director Alex Winter — the non-Keanu Reeves dude from the Bill and Ted movies — pitched this surreal early ’90s gem to the studios.

The resulting dark comedy is a true one-of-a-kind spectacular, featuring a cast of well-known actors (including, yes, Keanu) reimagined as carnival freak show performers.

Mr. T, Randy Quaid, Bobcat Goldthwaite, John Hawkes, and William Sadler (Bill and Ted’s Grim Reaper) all join the fun, while Brooke Shields gets a chance to go bonkers as a demented TV interviewer.

Not for everyone, maybe, but definitely for the right ones.
