Synopsis

Through the Freaks's musings, this film chronicles the last days of the iconic and abrasive Coney Island attraction, Shoot the Freak. Remaining in masked anonymity, the nihilistic teen indulges in drug-induced daydreams of violence and oceanic abandon. Weaving the fictional with the documentary and the actual with the virtual, Shoot the Freak is a timely, unsentimental memorialisation of a bygone era.
