Movie Info

Kept locked inside the house by her father, 7-year-old Chloe lives in fear and fascination of the outside world, where Abnormals create a constant threat - or so she believes. When a mysterious stranger offers her a glimpse of what's really happening outside, Chloe soon finds that while the truth isn't so simple, the danger is very real.


Critic Reviews for Freaks

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (5)

  • There's a dollop of Stephen King and a dash of "X-Men" to Zach Lipovsky and Adam Stein's sci-fi/horror grabber.

  • Nothing is less scary than a movie that makes no sense.

  • The fatal flaw of Freaks is that Lipovsky and Stein's tantalizing approach gives way to mundane results, as the questions raised by their screenplay are considerably more interesting than any of the answers that follow.

  • [Kolker's] semi-improvised performance couldn't be any more authentic and she's well matched with Hirsch, drawing on his own parental experience, as her conflicted and overprotective father.

  • A tight yarn whose structural cleverness makes it easy to ignore the deeply familiar story at its core.
