Haven't seen it in a few years.Yet remember it being laugh out loud funny as well.


Not sure about a dvd release...though theres a review over at imdb.com stating they saw a early preview release which was even more outrageous than what made it to theaters! Hmm maybe stuff was toned down to avoid an R??

I read an interview with Alex Winter a year or so ago and he was saying he was trying to get Freaked released on DVD.

Let me see if I can dig up the interview.

Here we go:

Alex Winter Interview

Hopefully it'll get done soon. I'd definitely pick it up.

Great movie! Look for an uncredited Keanu Reeves as Ortiz the Dog Boy!

Years ago I found a plastic molded figure of the Alex Winter character at Suncoast Video. I asked the guy behind the counter if there was a Mr T as the bearded lady or a BobCat sock puppet figure. With a puzzled look he replied, "I think so.?." Any way I had to buy it. Maybe I'll cruise eBay to see if there any other figures.

From http://www.fangoria.com/news_article.php?id=3888 :

Anchor Bay Entertainment just gave Fango the exclusive scoop on the final details of its FREAKED two-DVD special edition (now set to street July 12), along with the dual-layer cover art. Alex Winter and Tom Stern’s outrageous monster comedy will be presented in 1.85:1, 16x9-enhanced widescreen (Fango got an advance peek at the transfer, which looks great), with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround audio. The first disc will contain the following extras:

• Audio commentary by Winter and Stern
• A conversation with co-writer Tim Burns
• Deleted scenes
• Hijinx in Freekland, a collection of behind-the-scenes footage (Fango got to check this out too—funny stuff!)
• FREAKED art gallery
• Theatrical trailer
• DVD-ROM original screenplay

The second disc will include:
• FREAKED: The Reehersel Version, a full-length cast rehearsal of the film, including Keanu Reeves sans Dog Boy makeup, with scenes and dialogue that never made it into the final film
• There Are No Weirdos Here, early script readings of selected scenes, featuring actors Winter, Megan Ward, Michael Stoyanov, Derek McGrath, Lee Arenberg and John Hawkes
• It’s the Troll, terrifying footage of young actor Alex Zuckerman developing the character of Stuey Gluck
• Under Construkshen, behind-the-scenes video showing the creation of the Freek Land set
• Behold…The Beast Boy, footage of Winter’s makeup transformation into a hideous mutant freek
• Two short films by Winter and Stern, SQUEAL OF DEATH and THE NYU SIGHT AND SOUND PROJECT

The set will also come with a "freekish" booklet containing liner notes and photos. Retail price for all this is just $19.98.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT.

Anchor Bay went ABOVE and BEYOND for this one.

[Now Anchor Bay needs to get ahold of Fox's Shock Treatment and give that some sort of decent treatment. ]
