This movie shows the work of growing filmmakers who are clearly only getting started - ‘Freaks’ might not be a perfect film, but it’s one that plays with a couple of themes ahead of the curve while still subverting the norm in the process. - Jake Watt

I really wasn't sure about Freaks. It's several different movies at once, and I was pretty sure I wasn't going to like it after experiencing the first half, but by the end I realised I was very wrong.

Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go.
