From The Happy Death Day Dude
Blumhouse has released the first trailer for their upcoming body-swap movie titled Freaky, which will be out in theaters in November.
Like the title implies, the movie pulls a solid chunk of its premise from the 2003 Lindsay Lohan comedy Freaky Friday. But this time, there’s a killer new twist.
Here’s the trailer –
Freaky’s very lengthy synopsis reads –
“17-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 is 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), ultra-fabulous Joshua (Misha Osherovich) and her crush Booker (Uriah 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.”
Freaky is written and directed by Happy Death Day creator Christopher Landon who has re-teamed with Blumhouse for the new film.
Freaky will be released in November on Friday the 13th.
