It’s only Thursday, but there’s a Freaky Friday thing going on with Blumhouse’s body-swapping horror-comedy, Freaky. Instead of a mother and daughter switching bodies for a day and working together so as not to ruin one another’s lives, we have a young high school girl who gets uncomfortably close with a serial killer played by Vince Vaughn.
Freaky stars Kathryn Newton as Millie, a high schooler who finds that getting out of homework is the least of her problems. When a serial killer known as The Butcher (Vaughn) tries to murder her, mystical forces cause them to swap bodies. Now she looks like a towering middle-aged man with the cops on his trail, while the killer is a teenage girl with homicidal urges.
Also in the cast are Celeste O’Connor, Misha Osherovich, Uriah Shelton, Dana Drori, Katie Finneran, and Alan Ruck.
Behind the camera is Christopher Landon, who not only directed a bunch of Paranormal Activity flicks, but also both Happy Death Day movies. So this guy knows how to make horror that’s funny, and I can’t wait to see this one when it hits theaters on November 13th.
