A trapezist connives to marry a midget for his inheritance and is accepted into his community of fairground freaks. When her betrayal is discovered, they seek a horrific revenge. Pre-code and avantgarde, Freaks was vilified by both critics and public, who saw the film as a cruel exploitation of the physically abnormal. Revived in the 1960s, today it’s considered one of the greatest films of all time.
