Exploitation meister David Friedman was an expert at churning out low-budget skin-flicks and drive-in masterpieces. "She Freak" has been restored in clear detail and colors and you can see for yourself that Friedman blatantly ripped off Tod Browning's 1931 masterpiece, "Freaks." The movie starts out with promise, giving us glimpses of a real-life carnival, circa l967. But after awhile, it becomes boring. There's no skin shown, no soft-core sex, no violence and no suspense. There's even a scene taken literally from the ending of "Freaks" in which the devious heroine is transformed into a monster--bad make-up and all.

"She-Freak" is an ultra-low budget remake of Tod Brownings classic "Freaks," only contemporized and in color. This is truly a bad film, and fans of bad b-movies will get a kick out of it. The transfer of the DVD looks great, and the newsreel footage of real freaks is an added bonus. There's also commentary by Exploitation King David Friedman. Would have earned 5 stars if they had included a few trailers to some other films in the "Something Weird" catalog.

For a description of the plot, etc., read other reviews. I just want to give some thoughts on this movie...

If you like watching B horror movies that were suited for the drive-in movie crowd of the '60s, then definitely check out She Freak (1967). This carnival-based horror movie is pretty much a remake of Freaks (1932). It has basically the same plot. However, She Freak is clearly inferior to Freaks. For one thing, the acting is sub par, the fight scenes are laughably fake, very few actual "freaks" appear in the movie, and most of the music throughout the movie sounds like cocktail music. However, it is worth checking out not so much for the story, but for the carnival setting. The opening credit sequence lasts about five minutes and features a lot of good footage of every aspect of a then-modern day carnival. The camera angles are pretty cool during this sequence. The aerial shots are cool. From there, the movie gets into the story, which as I said, is a basically Freaks done all over again, but with less emphasis on the actual freaks themselves. Instead, there's a gold-digging former diner waitress who joins a traveling carnival and seduces the owner and another man who is a worker. You'll also see a sword swallower, a snake lady, and the typical attractions one would see at a carnival from 45 years ago.

This movie holds my attention throughout, even though the music and the acting bring it down a couple notches. If you're a fan of carnival and circus based movies from the 1960s and 1970s like I am, this is one that is worth checking out. There are better carnival and circus based movies from the era of the 1960s and 1970s, but this one does have that nostalgic carnival/circus atmosphere.

I didn't expect much from this movie, but it turned out to be one of my new favorite trashy flicks, a small town diner waitress with big dreams and high hopes joins the carnival when it comes to town and tangles herself up in a web of greed and ambition she can't escape from. This film is remarkably captivating for a no budget flick from 1967, the dialog and acting are atrocious, but it's paced well and not unlike the freaks themselves, you just can't look away. For fans of "Bad" and "So Bad It's Good" cinema this is a real gem, for fans of whatever the latest big budget hollywood drivel churned out is this week is, this is not for you.

Not in the same category as the classic 'Freaks'but I enjoyed 'She Freak',just in a different way.The carnival atmosphere of 1967 goes a long way since there really aren't freaks or monsters till the last 30 seconds of the movie,then you get one freak in total.Atmosphere is key here.Don't be alarmed by the cheap looking cover art,[cheezy flicks]the picture quality is actually good for being the low-budget schlockfest that it is. Look out for the fantastic ending that is in those something weird video openings(the reason I had to own this in the first place).Keep your expectations low(I mean LOW!!!!!)and you will love this crap just as much as I did.Great piece for the cheezy movie library.Really I mean it,I'm being honestly sincere.Now pass the cheeze Louweez right into your shopping cart.Then when you get home have a candle light dinner with the 'She Freak'

This reinterpretation of Tod Browning's wonderfully transgressive "Freaks" is not one of David F. Friedman's better films, although it is his personal favorite for reasons obvious to anyone familiar with his career. Something Weird mutants expecting gore-n-gals are barking up the wrong tree here, as "She-Freak" is strictly a general release picture, and quite tame even by those standards (Dave explains why in his commentary). The closest thing to skin is a fully clothed striptease by Lynn Courtney, and the only gore is a screwdriver through the hand bit on the illustrious Bill Bagdhad (Astro-Zombies).

You've seen "Freaks", right? Then you know the story...just substitute a waitress for the acrobat and a sideshow owner for Hans. Unlike "Freaks", "She Freak" is vibrant and colorful, and the shots taken from the California State Fair are some of the most impressive carnival footage yours truly has ever seen. In fact, they've been sold as stock to many other producers over the years. With the exception of a lone midget, there are no real human oddities in the film. Friedman was constrained by a California state prohibition on the exhibition of 'freaks' for profit, so rather than pack up and film somewhere else, he decided to have Harry Thomas create some monsters for him. Even those faux deformities only appear at the very end.

As I said, not one of Dave's better films, and sadly, not one of his better commentaries either. Mister Friedman has set the standard for the audio commentary medium, always entertaining and full of stories, but here he seems less lucid, and makes a surprising number of factual errors.
