It has now achieved deserved recognition as a masterpiece.
April 6, 2005
Unclassifiable odd masterpiece.

December 1, 2004
It's part of the film's brilliance that the lines between normal and abnormal, us and them, and even morality and immorality, are constantly blurred and reversed...
November 17, 2004
Ainda que Browning martele sem a menor sutileza sua mensagem ao longo de toda a projeção, o filme continua a impressionar graças ao seu elenco atípico e ao incômodo ato final.
| Original Score: 4/5

...the movie was never meant to be a horror film; it was meant to be a character study and morality play.

It's a truly amazing film, not so much horrific as it is funny, touching and extraordinary; you'd be hard-pressed to find another film like it.

A deserved cult masterpiece, this tale of the macabre, with its blood-freezing shock ending, is incredible, disturbing and, once seen, never forgotten.

Unforgettable.

August 19, 2004
Today, it's a cult favorite that continues to resonate -- The Player, Toy Story and Hedwig and the Angry Inch are just a few of the major films to have paid it homage.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 14, 2004
Pretty pioneering for 1932, but modern desensitization to such things (hell, we have Paris Hilton on TV) mutes the freak-out effect almost completely.

Freaks is definitely not a horror film in the traditional sense -- yet, it's appealed to horror fans for decades.
October 29, 2003
Browning uses the film's famous "Wedding Feast" sequence and its rhythmic use of montage to fantastically blur the lines between the normal and the abnormal.

To this day, there's never been anything like it.

Freaks is one of those legendary films, made all the more legendary by its ill-repute over the years.
October 2, 2002
It is a work of genius.

It's a cinematic slap in the face that'll leave you reeling with shock, surprise and maybe even delight. They certainly don't make them like this anymore.

Uniquely horrifying.

April 3, 2002
Freaks is a requisite entry in the library of horror.
October 24, 2001
If anything, the movie is a fable about accepting others as you would want to be accepted yourself. Unfortunately, the studios and general public didn't see it that way.
