    She-Freak Coming To Blu-ray from AGFA/Something Weird Video

    Coming in late August...

    Fed up with waitressing, Jade Cochran (Claire Brennen) embarks on a new life with a traveling carnival. But she discovers that what lurks behind the curtain doesn’t take too kindly to her backstabbing plans. A gutter-noir reworking Tod Browning’s FREAKS and a valentine to the carnival lifestyle that defined the career of producer David F. Friedman (BLOOD FEAST), SHE FREAK is a snapshot of life, love, and revenge on the grounds of a seedy carnival in Smalltown, USA — complete with crackpot monster make-up effects from Harry Thomas (PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE). Like Devo’s music and Ed Wood’s novels, SHE FREAK creates a synthetic reality that is often preferable to our own. AGFA + Something Weird are beyond excited to present a dazzling 4K restoration of this essential weirdo classic.

    I wonder if they'll put images from She Beast on the back?!

    What are the SHE FREAK inserts? Was ASLYUM OF THE INSANE the phony title that the film was exhibited as without the knowledge and permission of Friedman?

    ASYLUM OF THE INSANE was the name Donn Davison used when he picked it up for distribution and he inserted the 3D monster bits seen in the MONSTERS CRASH THE PAJAMA PARTY dvd.

    Thanks. Was that done with or without Friedman's knowledge?

    I watched the DVD just over a month ago and was surprised at the picture quality.

    Jobla — I think Dave knew and probably dealt with Donn directly at the time. They all knew each other.

    I think the story of Elmer McCurdy's mummified corpse is far more interesting than the film.
