She Freak1967

  • 3.1
Claire Brennen stars as a discontent waitress working in a small-town greasy diner, and looking for something more. When the circus comes to town, she finds herself attracted to its excitement and secures a job with the traveling show as a food service worker. As the circus moves on, and she with it, life seems to be going well; new friends, steady work, a romance or two, and eventually a new husband, but she discovers that she despises the freaks and human oddities of the side shows, and uses her marriage to the Circus' owner to take control of the carnival. Now she must strike a balance between profit and patience, as the carnies and side show freaks set out to exact revenge.

review coming up at theaterofguts.com here's a sample "Jade's career path ends up in the toilet, because wouldn't you know it, she's still a waitress only at a carnival instead! She's still got major tude and sticks her upturned piggy nose at a new breed of hicks. All the dudes in this movie have greasy pompadours and all the ladies look like hard faced strippers in between jobs, it's pretty glorious."

This is a magnificent piece of sleaze. If you could reach out and touch this movie, it would be covered with a thick layer of grease from a dirty grill in a broken-down lunch wagon. David L. Friedman serves up some lowdown, Gutbucket exploitation that’s not much on plot (a cheap knock-off of Todd Browning’s legendary “FREAKS.”), yet in the midst of telling this tawdry little tale , “She Freak” becomes something of a documentary, capturing the day to day operations of a carny in the latter half of the 1960’s. In gives you a unique look at a forgotten Americana from nearly a half-century ago.

Though it looks like a washed-out, 1960’s home movie, the story and the characters seem to be made for an earlier time, a Dustbowl melodrama, overacted and overdirected, but that gives the film an energy that carries to an outrageous conclusion. David L. Friedman was above all, a showman, and this is definitely a show!

Trivia time. “Shorty” played by Felix Silla later became a cultural footnote when he put on a robot suit and became “Twiki” on TV’s “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” in the late 70’s. Beedee-beedee-beedee.
