Real sideshow performers star in Tod Browning's infamous cult classic, a grotesque revenge drama set against a circus backdrop. When trapeze artist Cleopatra learns that circus midget Hans has an inheritance, she marries the lovesick, diminutive performer, all the while planning to steal his fortune and run off with her lover, strong man Hercules. When Hans' friends and fellow performers discover what is going on, they band together and carry out a brutal revenge that leaves Hercules and Cleopatra knowing what it truly means to be a «freak.» Trapeze artist Cleopatra plans to wed and then murder midget Hans for his fortune, but when his fellow 'freaks' discover her scheme, she becomes the target of their horrifying vengeance. With Wallace Ford, Leila Hyams, Olga Baclanova, Harry Earles, Henry Victor.

«One of the most powerful films ever made about the need for humanity and solidarity in the face of cruelty and oppression.» (Time Out)
