In a modern retelling of Tod Browning's "Freaks" (1932), "Freakshow" tells the story of a group of criminals who chose to hide out by working security at a traveling circus. At first, they plot with an insider to steal the ticket sales, but the wily Lucy has bigger plans. She convinces the gang to let her seduce and marry the aging circus owner, Lon, in order to secure the entire circus fortune after he "suffers an accident". "People die all the time," Lucy says. The freaks are on to their scheme, however, and when the youngest of them is caught by the ruthless gang, they show no mercy to ensure her silence. When the circus folk find the child's remains, they swear vengeance, and no one is safe from their fury--least of all, the wily Lucy. Written by
Well, I just finish watching the movie She Freak from 1967. My friend was correct. "Freakshow" looks to be more a remake of "She Freak" then of the 1932 Freaks. I comparing the two I can tell you with a certainty that Freakshow is much more a superior movie the "She Freak". "Freakshow" contained real freaks to give credibility to the movie. On the other hand, "She Freak" had a bigger budget, but no real freaks. "She Freak" went on forever before we had a chance to see any of the freaks, and when we did they were all fakes, and with lousy make up. In "Freakshow" we see the freaks right from the start, and we get to see them interacting with one another, performing and doing everyday tasks. My understanding from reviews and from the "Making Of" segment, "Freakshow" hired real sideshow performers. Between the two I'll take "Freakshow" anytime.
