Universal has released a new trailer for Freaky, the body-swapping horror comedy from Blumhouse. Oh, and it stars Vince Vaughn pretending to be a seventeen year old girl. Yeah, so go watch it.
Happy Death Day director Christopher Landon helmed Freaky which all but guarantees I will be watching this film. You want to know what I’m hoping for? Some sort of easter egg that hints Freaky is in the same universe as Happy Death Day. Let’s see a Freaky Death Day crossover movie, Blumhouse!
Seventeen-year-old Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton, Blockers, HBO’s Big Little Lies) 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 (Vince 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 (Celeste O’Connor, Ghostbusters: Afterlife), ultra-fabulous Joshua (Misha Osherovich, The Goldfinch) and her crush Booker (Uriah Shelton, Enter the Warriors Gate)—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.
Freaky hits theaters November 13, 2020 in what will surely be a Freaky Friday (*a-wink*).
