I've loved carnival horror all my life and American Horror Story: Freak Show had a ready-made audience in me.
You don't want to mention Berserk unless you're willing to lose friends.
Freaks is a must, of course
I'll make up for that by rewatching it.
I am balls deep in amazing movies, cable TV series and pulp fiction; my cup runneth over. And I do sometimes contemplate coming here, opening the crazy tap in my head and waxing lyrical about the cool product I have been consuming of late. Then I think *beep* it man... But maybe one day.
While I still gave it an 8/10 rating, it was quite a disappointment after the book. The film lacks the sheer visceral emotional impact of the books ending, even though they are technically the same. It doesn't *beep* with one's head the same as the book's ending did. Nor is the movie as savagely, darkly, viciously funny. Still, despite the coldness and high tech gloss, it's a slick crowd pleaser
