Freaks - 1932

Freaks is a real masterwork by Tod Browning. The movie starts with an introduction to what freaks are, as you can see above here on the screenshot. A man exhibits a freak show and tells the audience a story about a Feathered Hen.

Cleopatra is a beautiful blonde lady and works in a circus. Hans, a midget is in love with her. Hans has a fiancée named Frieda, also a midget. Cleopatra is after Hans' money and Frieda sees that and tries to warn Hans. Hans doesn't listen as he is blinded by love. One of the circus artists is Hercules. He has an affair with Cleopatra. They find out that Hans will get a big amount of money from an inheritance. Cleopatra, who is not in love with Hans at all, wants to get this money and she marries him. During the wedding, she makes a fool of Hans and she kisses with Hercules. The Freaks decide to accept her in the group, as one of them. She freaks out and lets the Freaks know she is disgusted by them. Cleopatra tries to poison Hans, but he finds out. Together with some freaks they lure here into a trap and a big fight breaks loose. Hercules gets killed by a knife and the freaks have a plan for Cleopatra... The story ofthe Feathered Hen.. ha ha ha ha....
