Well Go USA Entertainment released the official teaser trailer for Freaks directed by Adam Stein and Zach Lipovsky, and starring Emile Hirsch, Bruce Dern, Grace Park, with Amanda Crew, and introducing Lexy Kolker. Freaks will open in theaters nationwide on Friday, August 23rd.
In this science-fiction thriller, a disturbed father (Emile Hirsch) locks his bold 7-year-old daughter (Lexy Kolker) in a house, warning her of grave dangers outside. But the mysterious Mr. Snowcone (Bruce Dern) convinces the girl to escape and join him on a quest for family, freedom, and revenge.
Directors: “Freaks was inspired by Adam’s real-life experience as a new father. When Milo Stein was born, we were both fascinated by the wide-eyed wonder and intense fear that accompanies a child’s discovery of the world. We wanted to explore a father’s unbounded love and desire to protect his child, coupled with a parent’s exhaustion, inadequacy, temper and guilt.”
Film is an exercise in perspective. An audience explores a world through a character’s eyes, and we sought to make a film that is entirely told from the perspective of a child. We designed the film so the audience only sees and understands what Chloe experiences.
We asked ourselves, what would it really feel like to live in Chloe’s extraordinary head? We shot scenes mostly from her height, designed the sound so the audience would hear what she heard. We sought to make her
extraordinary visions as real as any other part of the film.
