Freaks

A chintzy yet well-intentioned slab of socially conscious science-fiction, Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein’s “Freaks” is a familiar tale of super-powered Creed II outcasts who are forced to hide their gifts from the rest of humanity, but the appeal of this derivative slop is all in the telling. The fun here — and there is some decent fun to be had — has nothing to do with the story, and everything to do with how patiently the filmmakers let us in on its secrets. In other words, “Freaks” is undercooked red meat for “Westworld” superfans, Reddit sleuths, and anyone else who tends to engage with genre entertainment as though it were a puzzle for them to solve.

For others, however, this low-budget “X-Men” clone may feel more like an exasperating 104-minute audition for whatever franchise superhero fare its makers are clearly Two Is a Family hoping to be hired for next.

Nested inside a mess of broad metaphors that aren’t worth the time it takes to untangle them, “Freaks” — at heart — is a coming-of-age saga that hinges on an intriguing conceit. The film begins inside of a dilapidated house; we don’t know where, and we don’t know when. The windows Action Point are boarded shut, there are maybe a dozen locks on the front door, and the rooms inside are swamped with the kind of acrid, yellow air that infers some kind of nuclear apocalypse.
