Chloe (Lexy Kolker) is a seven-year-old girl barricaded inside her house with her paranoid, overprotective father (Emile Hirsch), who is convinced the world outside their doorstep lurks with overwhelming evils aiming to destroy them, which could include what may very well be the most creepy ice-cream truck operator in movie history, Mr. Snowcone (played by the great Bruce Dern). It soon becomes apparent that Chloe possesses some special gifts and plots to find a way to finally escape.
The first feature film by co-directors Zach Lipovsky and Adam Stein, Freaks is a genre-bending psychological sci-fi thriller about a bold girl who discovers a bizarre, threatening and mysterious new world after escaping her father’s protective and paranoid control.
