Happy Death Day and Happy Death Day 2U director Christopher Landon is recently been teasing a brand new horror/comedy with an original concept titled Freaky, releasing November 13 2020 and the trailer has just been released.
If you view the ‘Happy Death Day’ films as a not-so-subtle parody of Bill Murray classic ‘Groundhog Day’ then it’s clear Landon has moved onto a new subject matter, parodying teen body-swap comedies like Freaky Friday & 13 Going On 30 but with a killer twist….
In Freaky, Seventeen-year-old Millie Kessler (Kathryn 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 (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.
From writer-director Christopher Landon; Freaky is written by Christopher Landon and Michael Kennedy (Fox’s Bordertown) and is produced by Jason Blum (Halloween, The Invisible Man). The film is produced by Blumhouse Productions in association with Divide/Conquer. The executive producers are Couper Samuelson and Jeanette Volturno.
Universal/Blumhouse’s Freaky looks to be releasing only in theaters.
