American Horror Story Freak Show episode 12 review: Show Stoppers

Freak Show's penultimate episode pays impressive visual homage to Tod Browning's classic horror movie, Freaks...

When Stanley arrives for dinner, Elsa announces that evening's entertainment will be one of her favorite movies, "Freaks," and then Eve, Paul, Suzi, and the other performers explain how the "freaks" in the movie take their horrific revenge on the person who betrayed them, then gather their own weapons and chase Stanley through the fairgrounds.
