Freaks - Movie Synopsis & Plot
In this science-fiction thriller, a disturbed father (Emile Hirsch) locks his bold 7-year-old daughter (Lexy Kolker) in a house, warning her of grave dangers outside. But the mysterious Mr. Snowcone (Bruce Dern) convinces the girl to escape and join him on a quest for family, freedom, and revenge.
The best part about the original sci-fi thriller Freaks
is that for a good chunk of its running time, you’re not sure what is real, what is imagined, or what exactly the hell is going on. Writing-directing duo Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein purposefully keep you at arm’s length for quite a while, opting to tell their story through the eyes of lead protagonist Chloe (Lexy Kolker). It’s a worthwhile move, the mystery arguably more satisfying than the answer. Read our Freaks movie review »
