What if you were prevented from leaving your house by the one who loves you the most? Would you believe their warnings of the outside world, or would you wonder what's really on the other side of your front door? That's the question young Chloe faces in Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein's new sci-fi thriller Freaks (in case you missed it, read Heather Wixson's 4-star review here), and to add some horror and sci-fi to the holidays, Well Go USA Entertainment is bringing Freaks to Digital on December 3rd and Blu-ray and DVD on December 10th:
