Special features on disc one include commentary with directors/writers Alex Winter and Tom Stern, a strange 12-minute behind-the-scenes presentation Hijinx In Freekland, a 21-minute conversation with writer Tim Burns, the trailer, deleted scenes, an art gallery (stills), the screenplay on DVD-ROM, additional trailers, and upfront ads. Disc Two offers 84 minutes of Freaked: The Reehersel Version, and There Are No Weirdos Here!, which is another five minutes of rehearsals. It's The Troll! is a three-minute script reading/rehearsal, and Under Construkshen is a four-minute behind-the-scenes featurette showing the construction of Freek Land. Additionally, Behold...The Beast Boy! is a seven-minute freaky look at Alex Winter's makeup transformation, and there are two short films by Tom Stern and Alex Winter, Squeal Of Death (16 minutes) and NYU Sight & Sound Project (one minute).
Now, don't get Freaked out, but this is one freakin' strange movie. When slimeball Ricky Coogin (Winter) and his friend Ernie (Stoyanov) arrive at Freek Land, they have no idea what's in store for them. But after meeting freakshow tycoon Elijah C. Skuggs (Quaid), they realize that all their worst nightmares have come true.(Tricia Spears)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD picture exhibits bright colors that are complementary to the over-the-top storytelling, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks.

Some pixelization is noticed at times; and there is minor
Reason #81 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I saw my first issue in a newsstand two years ago. The movie reviews caught my attention right away. They were extremely thorough with their inclusion of such items as release dates, aspect ratios, and list of main creators like cinematographer, director, and writers. The breakdown of the critic's composite score is very telling and useful. Equipment reviews are extremely comprehensive and tend to cover a greater range of brands than most publications. One Installer's Opinion is a gem. I've been a subscriber for over a year now and have two of your special publications, both of which are first rate. You seem to be a couple of months ahead of your rival publications with reviews, and new equipment announcements are testament to the quality and dedication of your staff. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next issue as always.
