Tod Browning's "Freaks" is a film centered around the beautiful trapeze artist Cleopatra (Olga Baclanova), who schemes with her lover, Hercules (Henry Victor), to seduce and marry a circus sideshow midget, Hans (Harry Earles), in order to obtain his large inheritance. The film depicts the so-called "freaks" in a sympathetic and human manner, while showing the most cruel and monstrous sides of the "normal" characters.

This week we tackle the legend of Todd Browning's 1932 film "Freaks", and Louis Fowler stops by to take "Twilight" fans down a notch.
