Dollar Bin Film - "Freaks"

A circus' beautiful trapeze artist agrees to marry the leader of side-show performers, but his deformed friends discover she is only marrying him for his inheritance. This film was one of the most controversial films of its time because director Tod Browning took the exceptional step of casting real people with deformities as the sideshow "freaks," rather than using costumes and makeup. This film is a classic and a must have for all horror fans. It was ahead of it's time the and is still a wonderful film that stood the tests of time to become a cult classic.

This is an Interesting & sad movie depicting how people with certain birth defects were treaded back then. But all together a good oldie
