Following its debut in Toronto last year to excellent reviews, the sci-fi/horror feature “Freaks” is finally slated for a theatrical release this August and the film’s trailer is now out.
in the film, 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 to find her missing mother.
The story is set in a world of superpowered individuals, called Freaks, who are being locked up by the government because of their inherent danger to regular people. Grace Park and Amanda Crew co-star in the film which hails from directors Adam Stein and Zach Lipovsky.
“Freaks” will have a special screening at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con before it hits cinemas on August 23rd.
