Freaks (1932)

Freaks (1932)

This has got to be the scariest movie I've ever seen. Tod Browning, who directed Bela Lugosi in the original Dracula, stepped into even eerier territory with this 1932 story of betrayal and retribution in the circus. Evil trapeze artist Olga Baclanova seduces and marries a midget in the circus sideshow, hoping to inherit his wealth. But in doing so, she has crossed the wrong folks: the tightly knit group of nature's aberrations, who stick together like family--and who set out to avenge their little pal. Browning brought in some of the most famous sideshow attractions of the era, include Siamese twins Daisy and Violet Hilton and Johnny Eck the Legless Boy, as well as Zip and Pip, microcephalics whose appearance in this film inspired cartoonist Bill Griffith to create his comic strip, "Zippy the Pinhead." So disturbing that it was banned for 30 years in Great Britain. Unreal!! A must-see!

  • Such a classic snack! I was amazed to find that these were even available anymore. I used to enjoy eating them so much, as well as carrying around the box with the little string that is attached to the top like a purse strap.

Cirque du Soleil is a Montreal-based group of performers who produce stunning shows that are a perfect mix of theatrics, acrobatics, and comedy. I love the costumes, the performers are amazing, and the music blows me away. Cirque du Soleil is touring North America with their new show, "Corteo" right now.

This book was a long time coming, originally slated for release over a year ago, but this adaptation of a short story by Neil Gaiman is worth the wait. If you've liked Michael Zulli's adaptations of Mr Gaiman's writing in the past, then you're sure to like this. The story, also available in Fragile Things, centers around a "true story", in so much as the characters are ostensibly Mr Gaiman and some of his friends. These friends are obliged to entertain an acquaintance, and ask him along to the theatre and sushi. The theatre doesn't pan out, so instead they go to a circus held in underground caverns in London. While there, the cheesy stage-show develops into a very real threat, and a member of their party never returns... The rich illustration style of Michael Zulli compliments this dark tale well. A visual feast, as well as a story-telling treat.

Corteo, means "cortege" in Italian, which, in this case, refers to a funeral procession. A clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by quietly caring angels. According to Cirque du Soleil, Corteo "highlights the strength and fragility of the clown, as well as his wisdom and kindness, to illustrate the portion of humanity that is within each of us." My favorite parts of Corteo: the large human rings, the jugglers, the male acrobats tossing the women (similar to trapeze without the swings!) and, although not acrobatic, the special musical performance by the Ringmaster--I won't give it away--was amazing.
