Life and career[edit]

Freeman's film Born Killers (2005).[1] In the 2007 film Borderland he plays Henry, one of a group of three college students who discovers a human sacrifice cult in a Mexican border town.[2] He extended his record of disturbing and dark material by landing a lead role as Holt alongside Sarah Roemer in the horror film Asylum (2008).Holt is one of several students, who must try to free the possessed campus.[3] He is the protagonist in the 2009 film Shadow, where he plays 'David,' who returns from traumatic military service in Iraq only to discover a much more horrifying lost Nazi experiment camp in the Alps.[4]
