Hypnotoad

7&8/100

7. Freaks (1932) A circus' beautiful trapeze artist agrees to marry the leader of side-show performers, but his deformed friends discover she is only marrying him for his inheritance.  This was mentioned in BRAVO's 100 scariest scenes in a movie.  It took a lot of work to find a copy but it was worth the hunt.  Truly stands the test of time! 7/10

8. Abre los ojos (1997) A very handsome man finds the love of his life, but he suffers an accident and needs to have his face rebuilt by surgery after it is severely disfigured. This is a GREAT movie!  You might want to watch it twice to REALLY get it.  Vanilla Sky was based on this movie and Penelope Cruz stared in both.  8/10
