The Grindhouse - She Freak

In 1967, David F. Friedman shat out a highly inferior update on Todd Browning's classic horror film Freaks. If it were released today, they would call it a "re-imagining."

Fantastic footage of a real carnival and some nice shots of classic sideshow banners are appealing, but for me the highlight is a scene about 90 seconds in that demonstrates how to woo a woman.

If the trailer leaves you wanting more, pick up She Freak on DVD from Something Weird Video.

The phrase "shat out" is used far too infrequently in movie reviews these days.

You didn't even mention the subliminals!

I saw Freaks as part of a double bill with Eraserhead. Dark, creepy flick, but ultimately it didn't stand up to Eraserhead, which IMO is almost in a class by itself.

(It has one rival: a Japanese film called Tetsuo the Iron Man, which captures a lot of Eraserhead's nightmarish qualities.)
