Freaks vs. the Reich Official Clip Showcases How Mathilde is Found by a Group of supernaturally Charged Circus Performers

A group of performers who don’t fit into the norms of society are using their unique abilities for good as they strive to protect not only themselves, but also the entire world. They’re using their incredible supernatural powers in a way that may change both their destinies and the entire course of history forever in the upcoming historical fantasy drama, ‘Freaks vs. the Reich.’

VMI Releasing will distribute the action movie in theaters and on VOD and Digital this Friday, April 28. In honor of ‘Freaks vs. the Reich’s release, Film Factual is premiering an exclusive clip from the feature, which is titled ‘Mathilde is Found.’

‘Freaks vs. the Reich’ was directed by Gabriele Mainetti, who also co-wrote the feature’s script with Nicola Guaglianone. Mainetti also composed the drama with Michele Braga, and also served as a producer on the feature. The movie stars Claudio Santamaria, Aurora Giovinazzo, Pietro Castellitto, Giancarlo Martini, Giorgio Tirabassi, Max Mazzotta, Franz Rogowski, Sebastian Hülk and Anna Tenta.

‘Freaks vs. the Reich,’ which is in Italian with English subtitles, is set during World War II in occupied Rome. The group of circus performers band together to fight the oppressive Nazi regime’s occupation of Italy, and eventually flee the Nazi menace for the shores of America.

The super-powered circus performers include the beautiful, young, electrically-charged Matilde (Giovinazzo); Cencio (Castellitto), an albino with the ability to control insects; Mario (Martini), a dwarf graced with magnetic powers; and Fulvio (Santamaria), a strongman covered from head to toe with hair. On their heels is the psychotic Franz (Rogowski), 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. The performers must find a way to not only escape the grasp of Franz, but also the brutal Nazis, so that they can change both their destinies and the entire course of history forever.
