Blumhouse’s founder and producer Jason Blum announced that Christopher Landon’s new horror comedy film Freaky would be available on-demand in 17 days some time ago in a now-deleted tweet. However, the film is accessible today on big screens worldwide.
Freaky (formerly titled Body Swap) explores the life of a seventeen-year-old girl named Millie Kessler, who is just trying to get through her senior year at Blissfield High. But when she becomes the newest target of The Butcher, her town’s infamous serial killer, she looks for ways to get out of his reach.
When The Butcher’s magical dagger causes him and Millie to wake up in each other’s bodies, Millie learns that she has 24 hours to get her body back before the switch becomes permanent. With some help from her friends Nyla, Joshua, and her crush Booker, Millie works on ways to reverse the curse while The Butcher discovers that having a female teen body is the facade for a little Homecoming killing spree.
The movie stars Kathryn Newton, Vince Vaughn, Celeste O’Connor, Misha Osherovich, Uriah Shelton, Alan Ruck, Katie Finneran, and Dana Drori.
