It takes the viewer on a dark ride into the world of carneys and does it in a goofy crowd-pleasing diverting way.

Audience Reviews for She-Freak

A horrible, no-budget ripoff of Tod Browning's carny-classic "Freaks." The ending is essentially revealed at the start, which is possibly a good move -- there's a modest degree of suspense about how the curvy star will mutate into a monster. The gal kinda looks like a cross between Elke Sommer and Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon. The dire shortage of plot is covered by exasperating/hilarious overuse of montage sequences. Loads of aimless carnival scenery, inevitably backed by a swinging vibraphone-jazz combo who seemingly worked harder than anyone else involved. If you tune in late and just catch the final 15 minutes, you'll extract all the entertainment "She Freak" has to offer.

It's a David Friedman production, so it is what it is. It's shlocky, and sloppily made, but it retains charm. Maybe we can say that this is a slow burn, leading up to a silly ending hoping to be atrocious. Still, if you like Something Weird's output, it's an enjoyable one.
