Over forty years after Todd Browning’s FREAKS shocked audiences, director Jack Cardiff  (Award winning cinematographer of Black NarcissusThe Red Shoes, and African Queen) and writer / producer Robert D. Weinbach
return to the circus sideshow

Not satisfied with the pace of natural selection in driving evolution, a deranged biologist decides to create his own genetically engineered mutations. With the promise of using his experiments to “cure” them, Dr. Nolter (Pleasence) enlists members of the local Freakshow to help him kidnap students from a nearby college to use as human guinea pigs.

Using the same techniques that he developed mixing the DNA of plants and animals, he begins crossbreeding plants  and humans with unpredictable results. One by one his failed experiments are cast off to the circus until the freaks have had enough and seek their bloody revenge.
Starring Donald Pleasence (Escape From New York, Halloween, Wake In Fright), Tom Baker (Golden Voyage Of Sinbad and Dr Who’s popular 4th doctor), exploitation great Brad Harris (Kommissar X) and Michael Dunn (Best Supporting Actor nominee for Ship Of Fools).
