  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Now, don't get Freaked out, but this is one freakin' strange movie. When slimeball Ricky Coogin (Winter) and his friend Ernie (Stoyanov) arrive at Freek Land, they have no idea what's in store for them. But after meeting freakshow tycoon Elijah C. Skuggs (Quaid), they realize that all their worst nightmares have come true.(Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD picture exhibits bright colors that are complementary to the over-the-top storytelling, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. While images are generally sharp and detailed, there can be a slight veil of softness that detracts from finer textures. Contrast and shadow delineation exhibit satisfying balance. Some pixelization is noticed at times; and there is minor
