Freaks (2018) is an unexpected thriller that I’ve had lingering on my watch list for a while. I’m not sure it’s technically horror. It’s more like a strange post-apocalyptic film with a large amount of bizarro mixed in. Maybe, even like A Quiet Place (2018).
Well, that was the beginning. Then the further I went down the rabbit hole, I thought of the book This Time of Darkness by H.M. Hoover. But still, that didn’t prepare me for what came next and how it ended. Enter the TV Series Heroes.
Freaks is one of the more difficult films to discuss without giving spoilers as there aren’t many flashy effects throughout. They save those for the money shots at the end. The acting is excellent, as are the sets. But what steals the show are the unexpected twists.
I highly recommend Freaks and give 4 out of 5 Stars.
