Interesting, But Tough To Watch
8 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Compiled here are six stories of physically deformed people, plus footage of some old-time "freaks," as they were labeled. This is a fascinating but creepy video to watch at times. It is an interesting documentary on some of the strangest-looking humans seen in the 20th century. While that gives it some historical value, I didn't find it "fun" to look at these poor people. The deformities ranged from heads sticking out of heads, to Elephant Man-type faces to a man without a lower body to a young teen who looks like an old man, on and on. They used to have these people in "freak shows," sad to say.

What's really amazing is the wonderful attitude on some of these people. They are a wonderful inspiration and lesson for all of us who complain out our troubles, which are nothing compared to these people. For that reason alone, I would recommend this tape for anyone. However, be warned: it's disturbing.
