Rarely screened and unavailable on DVD, this bizarro funhouse comedy features Alex Winter as rising star of the hit film Ghost Dude, hired to shill a new pesticide by the E.E.S. (Everything Except Shoes) Corporation, only to be kidnapped by a carny-show owner and transformed into a hideous pus-squirting gremlin.
Possessed with a scrappy absurdism that plays like a cross between the schoolyard slapstick of the ZAZ trio and the frenzied lunacy of Mr. Show, the film offers a virtual sideshow of anarchic weirdness—featuring machine gun-toting Jamaican eyeballs (“Rastafareyes”), Mr. T as the Bearded Lady and the cinema's first flashback by a common household hammer. “Freaked pays homage to everything from Tod Browning’s Freaks to the stop-motion magic of Ray Harryhausen, all while staking out a manically funny tone of its own.” – Scott Tobias, The A.V. Club
Directors: Tom Stern & Alex Winter. 80 min. 1993. 35mm.
