 Freaks was an American horror film released in 1932. The film tells the story of two 'normal' circus performers who plan to murder another performer in order to gain their inheritance. Much of the cast was comprised of real life carnival performers with deformities. The twist to the film is that the 'freaks' are decent and trusting, whereas the 'normal' characters are the real villains.
