"Freaks" Teaser Trailer Premiere - Sci-Fi/Horror/Thriller film Starring Emile Hirsch and Bruce Dern
Official Synopsis: In this science-fiction thriller, a disturbed father (Emile Hirsch) locks his bold 7-year-old daughter (Lexy Kolker) in a house, warning her of grave dangers outside. But the mysterious Mr. Snowcone (Bruce Dern) convinces the girl to escape and join him on a quest for family, freedom, and revenge.
What The Diner thinks: With a slow disillusionment and dread creeping in to The Diner lately over bigger budget, blockbuster films and their lack of imagination and courage, we are also incredibly hopeful with some of the low to mid-range budget films we’re seeing getting a release. Freaks looks to be the next one.
The teaser trailer below shows an interesting, razor-blade tension filled, paranoia based science fiction thriller featuring two of my favourite actors Emile Hirsch (who doesn’t work enough) and Bruce Dern (a legend for six decades who’s still going strong!). The intriguing concept and the performances are enough to get my bum in a seat, opening day.
It’s already become the darling of the film festivals with a slew of selections and wins:
Official Selection – Toronto International Film Festival
Official Selection – Santa Barbara International Film Festival
Winner – Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (Jury Prize)
Winner – Vancouver International Fantastic Film Festival (Emerging Filmmaker Award)
Winner – Paris International Fantastic Film Festival (Best Film – Audience Award)
So it looks like Freaks is one to “keep an eye out” for In Theaters Nationwide on Friday, August 23rd
