Freaked


Freaked. A movie so underrated and unappreciated that you probably have never heard of it, and that's a damn shame. Like the trailer says, "Coming soon to... a theater.", this one came and went and no one noticed. All I know is my friend Mike B and I stumbled across this one and never looked back. Seriously though, written, co-directed and starring Bill S. Preston Esq (Sorry, I mean Alex Winter). How rad is that? It was billed as "a thinking man's stupid comedy" and it delivered. 80's favorites (Bobcat!) galore relishing in camp nonsense and winking at their own quick fading fame, with the kind of makeup and creature effects that are so missed now (especially with Tommy and I) thanks to the rise and complete takeover of CG effects. Meh. Anyway, grab this track and listen on repeat on the way to video store, you need this freak.
