In case you’ve forgotten, Saw VI isn’t the only genre film opening this weekend. Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant will also hit theatres on October 23rd, and in celebration of the upcoming release, Universal is allowing fans to join the freak show through the launch of a brand new “iFreak” iPhone and iPod Touch application.
The “iFreak” application allows users to take a photo (or select one from an existing album) and transform into their favorite freak from the film, including the bearded lady Madame Truska, Loafhead, Gertha Teeth, Mr. Tiny, Wolfman, Rhamus Two-Bellies, Evra Von, and Larten Crepsley. Users can mix and match characters and add endless features until they are completely satisfied. Once a freak inside and out, the user can name the creation, save it to their iPhone and iPod Touch, email, and share their new identity through social networking outlets.
The “iFreak” application also contains a gallery of photos from the film and the official trailer. It’s free of charge and available for download on iTunes. Visit the official The Vampire’s Assistant website for more information.
Check out the pictures and video below for a peek at exactly what “iFreak” can do!
The Vampire’s Assistant (review here) stars John C. Reilly, Ken Watanabe, Josh Hutcherson, Chris Massoglia, and Ray Stevenson. The film is directed by Paul Weitz and is distributed by Universal Pictures.
