Freak Show turns any video camera or iSight into a digital fun house mirror. The free version has effects very similar to Apple Photo Booth but runs on computers that can't run Photo Booth. The paid version adds the Extreme tab with nine additional effects, the ability to create your own Freak Show Quicktime movies, and a full-screen mode.

You don't have to have an iSight to run Freak Show. Firewire DV cameras give great results. You can also use most webcams, and of course Freak Show works with iSight too.

Unlike Photo Booth, Freak Show does not require Quartz Extreme and is a universal binary so it can run on any more...
