Freaks VS. The Reich, an epic, over-the-top fantasy thriller set against the backdrop of WWII that is opening theatrically and day-and-date, via VOD and digital platforms on April 28th.

The sophomore effort from They Call Me Jeeg, Director Gabriele Mainetti.

SYNOPSIS – During World War II in occupied Rome a group of circus performers endowed with supernatural powers band together to fight the oppressive Nazi regime’s occupation of Italy in FREAKS VS. THE REICH, a fantastical historical action-adventure, the sophomore effort from They Call Me Jeeg director Gabriele Mainetti.

Looking to flee the Nazi menace for the shores of America are four super-powered circus performers: there’s beautiful, young, electrically-charged Matilde, Cencio, an albino with the ability to control insects, Mario, a dwarf graced with magnetic powers, and Fulvio, a strongman covered from head to toe with hair. On their heels is the psychotic Franz, an ether-addicted, six-fingered Nazi who runs the nearby circus and believes that the supernaturally gifted quartet will help him turn the tide of the war, delivering the ultimate victory for Hitler and the Reich. Will the “freaks” be able to escape the grasp of the brutal Nazis or will their incredible powers be harnessed in a way that could change both their destinies and the entire course of history forever?
