"Freaks" is a Classic

I purchased this TCM four-pack b/c it included "Freaks" and am glad I did. "Freaks" stars
many "freaks" that Todd Browning recruited from around the world to star in his feature which followed "Dracula". This pre-code classic was nevertheless banned in many cities probably because the physically deformed characters had much more humanity than almost all of the "normal" people. Robert Wise's "The Haunting" is considered one of the better horror movies of the 1960's. (Wise directed 2-3 movies for Val Lewton).
