Director Christopher Landon proved his horror-comedy chops with the Happy Death Day movie, and we’re thrilled to see that his latest film Freaky looks just as hilarious and strange.
In Freaky, 17-year-old Millie Kessler is just trying to survive the bloodthirsty halls of Blissfield High and the cruelty of the popular crowd. But when she becomes the latest target of the town’s infamous serial killer, The Butcher, 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 she has just 24 hours to get her body back before the switch becomes permanent—trapping her in the form of a middle-aged maniac forever. The only problem is, she now looks like the towering psychopath who’s the target of a city-wide manhunt. To make matters worse, The Butcher has brought his appetite for carnage to Homecoming—and his new teen body is the perfect cover for a killing spree…
Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies, Paranormal Activity 4) and Vince Vaughn (The Cell, Psycho) star as Millie/The Butcher. The cast also includes Celeste O’Connor (Ghostbusters: Afterlife), Misha Osherovich (NOS4A2), Uriah Shelton (The Glades), Alan Ruck (Fox’s The Exorcist), Katie Finneran (Night of the Living Dead), and Dana Drori (Into the Dark).
In addition to directing, Landon co-wrote Freaky with Michael Kennedy. The film was produced by Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions in association with Divide/Conquer. Couper Samuelson and Jeanette Volturno executive produced.
Freaky will release on November 13th. Check out the unmissable trailer below!
