Freaks might be the best superhero movie you’ve never heard of

There’s no price tag for ambition, which is true for either end of the budget spectrum. The bread and butter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe produces $200 million in blockbusters, but in 2018 geeks is one of the best superhero stories in recent years, and this little masterpiece cobbled together for a whopping $2,000.

The story, which incorporates elements of sci-fi and horror in a story deeply rooted in the tropes and trappings of the comic book genre, finds a 7-year-old girl being locked inside the house by her father in order to protect her from a world she is intentionally hidden for reasons that will soon become clear.

It turns out that young Chloe is an abnormal – a rare group of enhanced individuals possessing unique and often dangerous abilities – and there are people out there who want to arrest the child for nefarious and experimental purposes. Co-writers and directors Zach Lipovsky and Adam Stein blew it away with their incredible lo-fi gem, which proved hugely profitable, although a box-office hit of $350,000 sounded paltry on paper.

Add to that Rotten Tomatoes scores of 88 and 86 percent from critics and viewers, and it’s pretty obvious geeks is a film that deserves to be seen by a much larger audience than it currently manages to enthrall. Thankfully, Redditors were in force to celebrate the many virtues of what is, by every measure, the best unofficial X-Men movie you’ll ever see.
