Freaks is the 1932 horror classic that shocked the world upon its release and continues to do so to this very day. Directed by Tod Browning (Dracula), Freaks is set in a travelling circus which has a sideshow attraction of freaks consisting of joined Siamese twins, legless men, pinheads, bearded ladies and midgets including Hans (Harry Earles) who is in love with trapeze artist Cleopatra (Olga Baclanova) but since she is 'normal' there is little hope of the relationship Hans wants ever coming to fruition. Cleopatra becomes involved with circus strong man Hercules (Henry Victor); when they learn that Hans has inherited a fortune, Cleopatra and Hercules devise a plan where she will marry Hans and slowly poison him to death whereby they will be left with his money. But when one freak finds out, the code of the freaks kicks in, resulting in ten minutes which have been described as the most harrowing in all of cinema.
