The director of Happy Death Day has reunited with Blumhouse to bring a new horror in the vein of Disney Classic Freaky Friday…..in the aptly titled FREAKY.
Due for release on Friday the 13th this November, the just released trailer offers up a comedy horror vibe, much like Christopher Landon’s last successful Groundhog Day horror style franchise.
Vince Vaughn stars alongside Kathryn Newton.
Here is the official synopsis and the trailer is below:
This November, on Friday the 13th, prepare to get Freaky with a twisted take on the body-swap movie when a teenage girl switches bodies with a relentless serial killer.
Seventeen-year-old Millie Kessler (Newton) is just trying to survive the bloodthirsty halls of Blissfield High and the cruelty of the popular crowd. But when she becomes the newest target of The Butcher (Vaughn), her town’s infamous serial killer, her senior year becomes the least of her worries.
When The Butcher’s mystical ancient dagger causes him and Millie to wake up in each other’s bodies, Millie learns that she has just 24 hours to get her body back before the switch becomes permanent and she’s trapped in the form of a middle-aged maniac forever. The only problem is she now looks like a towering psychopath who’s the target of a city-wide manhunt while The Butcher looks like her and has brought his appetite for carnage to Homecoming.
With some help from her friends — ultra-woke Nyla (O’Connor), ultra-fabulous Joshua (Osherovich) and her crush Booker (Shelton) — Millie races against the clock to reverse the curse while The Butcher discovers that having a female teen body is the perfect cover for a little Homecoming killing spree.
From the deliciously debased mind of writer-director Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day, the Paranormal Activity franchise) comes a pitch-black horror-comedy about a slasher, a senior, and the brutal truth about high school.
