OriginEdit

Freaks is a 1932 American Pre-Code horror film (Pre-Code is the time before the Motion Picture Production Code censorship guidelines were introduced) in which the eponymous characters were played by people who worked as carnival sideshow performers and had real deformities. The original version was considered too shocking to be released and most of those copies were destroyed. Directed and produced by Tod Browning whose career never recovered from it. Later the film was recut with several scenes removed, however it still received negatively by audiences, recording a loss of $164,000 and remained an object of extreme controversy. Because the film was thought to be overly exploitative it was banned in the United Kingdom for 30 years.
