Written By Alex Winter and Tim Burns

the 3 were involved with the MTV sketch comedy ‘Idiot box’ and Freaked is supposed to be retain that same brand of humor

I never watched the show but there are a few laughs in this.

Just as I think the opening credits are too long, they go off! Now I see why they put them at the end, or at least don’t do the credits like they used to in the beginning.

I didn’t know or at least remember that Winter was acting in this, so when they showed him I almost didn’t recognize him with the black hair.

basically if he’s not in Lost Boys or Bill and Ted costume I usually just stare thinking he looks familiar but having no idea why! I only realized it was him because he has writing and directing credits.

Bobcat Goldthwait voiced the sock head  and Mr. T makes a surprising appearance

I had this on my Netflix Queue but though I’d look up what’s in my SAVED (and netflix likely not getting) movies on

my StreamDor app  You get thousands of movies for free! The app is $1.99 but WELL worth it!

You can search movies by title, language  etc. If you are taking a foreign language class its great as you can watch movies likely in that language. I always enjoy hearing what other languages sound like.

If you are interested check it out soon as i am not sure if they delete movies out or not (I was looking one up they had once before, and it didn’t come up this time)

 

Now that all that is cleared up and I do apologize for a little babbling; The movie is about some celebrity Rocky Coogan, who is going to lend his name for some chemical Zygot (or something like that). He and his friend Ernie end up at a protest and upon seeing one of the activists Ricky falls for her. The three of them are traveling on the road when she learns who Ricky (in disguise) really is. They end up at a roadside Freak show and are conned into staying and becoming part of that freak show!

I thin you could say its a little campy, There’s a Freak ‘talent show’

I think I may have seen about a minute of this back inthe 90s SOme parts remind me of a certain band’s music videos. Then there’s Alex Winter’s Freak… and why I used the poster image I did and not another version. I’ll just say there’s a gremlins joke in there.

 

it was so~so… a few laughs  if it weren’t from the 90s I’d say it was Fresh

If you want to watch a movie without a bunch of CGI FX…. check this out, all costumes and prosthetics   C

 

Oh my… looking through the cast no WONDER why ortiz the dog (wolf?) boy sounded familiar!!
