    ROCK.
    I believe I'm one of 5 people (literally) who saw the hilarious "Freaked" in the theaters.

    Freaked was one of the few movies I actually owned on LaserDisc. I will look forward to having it on DVD! Funny movie. Loved the bit with the hammer having the flashback...

    Ricky: Freaked is not being edited for this potential DVD. It was released theatrically with a PG-13 rating.

    I loved Freaked,though haven't seen it in years. Could'nt stop laughing though since it was so out there.
    I read a review on imdb.com or maybe amazon where someone stated that they saw a rough cut/sneak preview & it was even more outragous & crazy(+ even better/funnier)...but the studio ended up cutting it down & changing alot around to get a lower rating + please the test audiences who just didn't "get" it. Is this true? If so i'd love to see the original version.
