Audio 2: Commentary with Producer David F. Friedman
Claire Brennen stars as a waitress who leaves the greasy-diner business for the excitement of the carnival. She quickly discovers that she despises freaks and human oddities.
Outstanding exploitation flick with a palpable sense of sleaziness… Feels like an old E.C. comic book story, one that would have been drawn by Graham Ingals…who cares if it’s a “Freaks” rip-off: it has its own unique charm, with loads of authentic carney atmosphere (producer/writer David Friedman was a carny himself up until a couple years ago) and great performances from a cast of nobodies. Shorty is incredible, as is the fat, sweaty hash joint owner at the beginning. And David Friedman as a freak show barker is not to be missed. The genuinely unsettling make-up for the She-Freak is by Ed Wood’s make-up man. Good stuff.
