1932. USA. Dir: Tod Browning. With Wallace Ford, Leila Hyams. 62 min.

 

“Gooble gobble, one of us…” A group of sideshow performers exact their revenge on a beautiful trapeze artist after she betrays one of their own. The director of Dracula turned his camera on real-life circus members, giving this spooky circus tale a “freaksploitation” angle so disturbing in its day that it allegedly caused an audience member to miscarry.
