Blu-ray Review - She Freak


1967's "She Freak" opens with a declaration that the production is strictly a fictional story, with no connection to the reality of carnival life. It's a suspicious note of legal panic to add to the start of the feature, which is essentially a remake of Tod Browning's "Freaks," only with a lot more footage of everyday life with a traveling carnival. In fact, most of the movie focuses on the loading and unloading of rides and stages, and director Byron Mabe frequently steps away from the plot to simply walk the property, soaking up the atmosphere (and beef up his run time). It's a simplistic tale of manipulation, but "She Freak" offers a time capsule viewing experience for those interested in the way carnivals were during unregulated times, keeping it compelling, even when nothing of note is happening on-screen.
