Remember Alex Winter, the "other guy" from Bill & Ted? Did you ever wonder why his career seemingly dried up, while Keanu Reeves went on to make tons of big budget blockbusters, despite having all the charisma of a potato? Well, Freaked is the answer. Alex Winter co-wrote, co-directed, and starred in this $11 million black comedy about fame and social responsibility, which ultimately earned a mere $29,000 at the box office. This tremendous failure has nothing to do with the quality of the film, however, as it is an absolutely fantastic 90's punk rock punch in the nuts of the status quo. When 20th Century Fox fired their studio head, the new leadership thought this movie was "too weird" and pulled it from wide distribution. With wild art and effects that are reminiscent of the skateboard culture and graffiti aesthetics of the time; music from the Butthole Surfers, Henry Rollins, Blind Idiot God, and others; and absolutely ludicrous performances by Randy Quaid, Mr. T, Bobcat Goldthwait, Keanu Reeves, William Sadler, and Brooke Shields; it's no wonder the suits didn't like it. But make no mistake, this movie is a classic that should have been given a chance under its original title of "Hideous Mutant Freekz".
