Storyline

A company that produces a toxic chemical tries to improve its image via a popular spokesperson, Ricky Coogan. Ricky travels to South America to get a first-hand look at the chemical's effects and finds himself at a mutant freak farm. Elijah, who runs the farm, is only too happy to have new subjects on which to try his freak machine. The very chemical that Ricky is supposed to promote is the one responsible for creating the great variety of freaks. Written by Christine Sai-Halasz <sai@mit.edu>

Trivia

Test-audiences were said to have reacted negatively to the first showings of the completed film. According to Alex Winter on the DVD commentary, many of the younger teen-types that made up a majority of the preview-crowd, were expecting this to be the next "Bill and Ted" movie, and often were vocal to what they were seeing on-screen. During a line of dialogue from Brooke Shields in the opening scene, a young male test audience member rose from his seat to yell, "Fuuuuuuck Yoouuu, Biiiiitch!!", much to the dismay of the filmmakers present.

Best Unreleased Movie of All Time
18 July 2005 | by (Hammond, IN) – See all my reviews

Freaked is a prime example of what a studio will do to your movie. This movie would have been the vulgar, dirty, nasty rated R movie Americans would love 5 years later. Even in being reduced to pg-13 jokes, this movie is the greatest unreleased movie of all time, and one of my favorite movies of all time. Alex Winter and Tom Stern did a great job of directing such an elaborate film. Alex's performance as Ricky Coogan is amazing and the special effects make-up is as good as i've seen in any movie. The beast boy make-up for Alex winter is incredible. this 12milion dollar movie is ridiculously elaborate and packed with gags. it is in the realm of airplane or the naked gun series with non stop jokes. most of the jokes in freaked hit big time. it was only released in two theatres, it was discontinued on VHS. now its on DVD. rent it. it deserves a chance. it could have been a hit. and imagine if they could have made it how they really wanted, it would have been a cult classic. the acting in this movie is top notch by everyone on screen. randy quaid in his best performance ever and keanu reeves in his best performance ever as Ortiz the dog boy. 4 stars. word.
