I will be revisiting a classic movie from my childhood today. Freaked. Before I go any further let me put the synopsis for you.
spoiled young actor of the Brat Pack generation signs on as the
celebrity spokesman for Noxon, a gene-altering chemical fertilizer
marketed only in Third World countries. During a subsequent junket to
South America to promote the product, he falls into the hands of a mad
alchemist who transforms the actor into hideous freak and places him on
display in a carnival sideshow."
I know what you're thinking, and yes the movie IS as good as it sounds. I have always remembered this movie but could never remember the name of it. By mere coincidence the director Alex Winter, happened to be on one of the podcasts I listen to (The Nerdist) and the movie was mentioned. How lucky is that?!
So, go track down this movie and watch it! You most likely won't regret it.
