Did You Know?

Trivia

The reason why there are so many long takes in the movie, according to Brad Jones, is because many of the songs on the movie's soundtrack were actually played during the filming of the scenes, as opposed to being added in during post production. See more »

Goofs

All of the songs on the soundtrack, except for three, were not in existence at the time the film takes place. The film takes place on the night of August 7 and morning of August 8, 1973. Only the songs "Love or Let Me Be Lonely" (Friends of Distinction, 1970), "Backstabbers" (O'Jays, 1972), and "Love Train" (O'Jays, 1972) could have been heard at that time. See more »

Haunting performance/story. Great small movie for Brad Jones Fans
4 January 2017 | by fox-37204See all my reviews

THIS IS THE WEBSITE CUT OF FREAK OUT // Its a good movie for what it is, Brad Jones' first movie with small budget. The reason I say this is it's an acquired taste. The fact is however, it is only on release at thecinemasnob.com and has no DVD release. Any viewer of the film almost certainly is a Brad Jones fan, and will probably like this movie.

The greatest part of Freak Out is its horror, characters, and plot. The story is well paced and developed. Brad Jones is great as Dean Corll, pulling off a very, very haunting performance. (Warning: a very NC-17 serial killer performance. I don't want to get into further details, and I don't even think IMDb would let me.) The second and third acts of this movie are chilling and completely unpredictable, if you stuck around through the first act, just be ready for anything...

Acting outside of Dean is a bit shaky, ranging from just adequate to almost mediocre. Line delivery can be very boring, and seem to actually fit into the cheap style of this film, which seems unintentional in my eyes. It felt that supporting characters acting in this film are just simply not ambitious at all. This doesn't mention the fact that many of these characters are supposed to be teenagers, which just doesn't look right. Everyone seems to be in their mid-20s.

The cheap technical style of this movie seems to be the strongest in this movie, making the film a little less appealing than Jones' others. Editing in this movie is also a little off. There's a scene in this movie which has a random cut to somebody putting on a backpack. Never to be seen again. Also the sound quality is a bit on the mediocre side, music is playing in the actual scene usually rather than in post-production, the car scenes are OK with this at the very most, but the opening disco scene feels horribly cheap.

I am personally a big Brad Jones fan so I may have a little bias, but I can assure you, for those who like these types of movies, meaning low-budget alternative B-movies, this is a excellent film.
