  • It's just not special enough.

  • [T]he film shrewdly keeps us inside Chloe's head, filtered through her very limited comprehension of her burgeoning and truly awesome abilities.

  • Likewise, the movie seems restrained by its budget, which is unfortunate because the imagination it shows its promising. It's only in materially realizing itself where it falls short.

    September 12, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's watchable and intriguing stuff, yet also silly and inconsistent.

    September 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Its most effective trick, though, is to trap us all inside Chloe's head, presenting a child's-eye view of a world gone incomprehensibly mad.

    September 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Freaks is a compendium of movie love, as much as it is a movie. Its success rests on an astonishing performance by Lexy Kolker, who was seven when the film was shot.

Audience Reviews for Freaks

  • Jan 07, 2020
    Freaks wasn't a movie even on my list to watch. I saw the reviews on here and since it was available, I took the gamble, that paid off. Incredible filmmaking maintains secrecy for the plot and it reveals itself at the correct moments. Strong cast ensure this character driven film is never boring, and sets an ending that is tough to watch. This film is exactly why indie cinema is required. It's a strong storyline with ambitious plot points and visually harrowing to watch. It's funny that this low budget film is more compelling than any of the X-men films created by Fox Studios. They had the property for over a decade and never created anything remotely close to this. Filmmakers have a strong future and I can't recommend this enough. 04/01/2020

    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.
