Tod Browning's "FREAKS" Movie (1932)! A Grotesque Important Cult Classic on DVD!

***
PRESENTS


This movie's prologue tells audiences exactly what
they are about to see in straight forward
clarity.
*
"FREAKS"
was a pre-code film that tells the story of a
trapeze performer who convinces a midget
to marry her with an intent to poison
him so she can take his inheritance and
share it with 'Hercules', another circus
side-show performer.
*
*
"FREAKS"
is about these side-show 
"CURIOSITIES of NATURE",
and their code of ethics arched by
a theme of TOLERANCE.
*
The 'attractions' seen in this film are
the "real deal", and not compromised
by any Hollywood special effects.
*
*
*
*
This is real!
No Hollywood Special Effects.
This is "Half-Man Harold".
*
 Joined at the hip from birth (1908),
twins Daisy and Violet Hilton were not
only carnival side-show attractions, but
also legitimate vaudeville performers.
*
Daisey Hilton was married.
*
These side-show "ATTRACTIONS"
could find work only in the
"FREAK" entertainment industry.
*
*
*
*
The Review?
A GROTESQUE, GROSS-OUT, IMPORTANT MOVIE!
