SHE-FREAK GOES BERSERK on the TCM UNDERGROUND - COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN (Day 7.1)
Nearly neglected to mention the showing tonight on the Turner Classic Movies UNDERGROUND of a cult not-so-classic carnival freak show set SHE-FREAK, at 2am. It may not be worth staying up for, but it might just deserve a viewing during the light of day.
This move would've played well in a double feature with the true classic, FREAKS, due to setting and theme. Hell, throw in the film to follow this one tonight and you've got a triple feature of the kind of carny creepiness that could pull in just about anyone.
At 3:30am, Joan Crawford stars in the mystery/thriller BERSERK! as the owner/ringmaster of a circus which finds it's attendance soar as the numbers of mysterious murders increases.
Some believe Crawford's character to be the murderer, some think it is her new, young lover. Whatever the case, folks want to witness the true life terror in the big top!
