      Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It is ridiculously coy about what is going on... Just start the movie, guys! Sep 16, 2019 Full Review Nick Allen RogerEbert.com It's just not special enough. Rated: 2/4 Sep 13, 2019 Full Review Mike D'Angelo AV Club [T]he film shrewdly keeps us inside Chloe's head, filtered through her very limited comprehension of her burgeoning and truly awesome abilities. Rated: B Sep 13, 2019 Full Review Jeremy Aspinall Radio Times A surprising and refreshing riff on "gifted child" flicks like Firestarter or The Fury. Rated: 3/5 Jun 23, 2022 Full Review Alix Turner Filmotomy In terms of the visual effects, writing, acting and overall package, you won't have seen anything quite like Freaks. It is both sci-fi and horror, that doesn't look like either at first, and raises the standard for both too. Rated: 5/5 Feb 4, 2021 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse Good science fiction is rarely exactly about what we see on screen. In that sense Freaks isn't about Chloe's powers, it's about being different from those around you, about persecution, about feeling unwanted. Rated: 3/5 Jan 31, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
