Storyline

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 EllenRipley112

Banned in 43 countries is a complete lie.
18 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was dumb enough to rent this movie just because it said that on the cover and I wish I had paid more attention and realized they didn't say where this quote came from. They obviously just put it on there and its completely false. There was nothing shocking, nothing exciting, and nothing entertaining in this movie. It was one of the absolute worst movies I have ever seen as there was no character development, bad acting, bad dialogue, and it moved very slowly. Do not support this movie. You will be very disappointed. For the record, I enjoy B-horror movies. This wasn't even good in that B movie, funny kind of way. Awful all around.
