Freaks FREAKS (1932) is the sensational horror movie that dared to use real-life “human anomalies” in its tale of greed, betrayal and retribution in a travelling carnival. Dwarfs, pinheads, and the limbless are just some of the grotesque figures that provide Tod Browning’s seminal work with its unique atmosphere of primal fear and revulsion. This special ebook provides an in-depth history and analysis of this classic cult movie, illustrated by rarely-seen publicity photographs, plus a bonus feature on half-man Johnny Eck, “King of the Freaks”. Also included is the classic horror story “Spurs” by Tod Robbins, which was the main inspiration for the film.
