Story


Chris Mankowski (Billy Burke) used to be on the Detroit Police bomb squad, but it's not until he's transferred to sex crimes that he gets a real taste of juggling dynamite. After falling for the lovely Greta Wyatt (Sabina Gadecki), he gets suspended for investigating the rich, powerful and drunk Woody Ricks (Crispin Glover). Taking matters into his own hands, Mankowski quickly realizes it won't be easy to get justice for Greta. From former Black Panther Donnell Lewis (Michael Jai White) to sexy ex-fugitive Robin Abbott (Breanne Racano) and her erstwhile bombing partner Skip Gibbs (Christian Slater), everyone wants something from Ricks. With all these unscrupulous deviants in the mix, one thing's for certain... it's gonna get freaky!

Populated by some of Elmore Leonard's most memorable characters and filled with the author's trademark menace, fantastic dialogue and deadpan humor, "Freaky Deaky", directed by Charles Matthau (The Grass Harp), had its world premiere at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival.
