First trailer for Freaky showcases body-swapping terror

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

It's a FREAKY FRIDAY situation but with a terrifying twist in the first trailer for, FREAKY, the latest from writer and director Christopher Landon.

FREAKY comes to us from Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions and the story follows a young high school girl (Kathryn Newton) that swaps bodies with a deranged serial killer called The Butcher (Vince Vaughn). It becomes a race against time when she realizes that she has less than 24 hours before the swap becomes permanent but 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. The film also stars Uriah Shelton, Alan Ruck, Katie Finneran, Celeste O' Connor, and Misha Osherovich.

Principal photography lasted on the film for about 35 days and it was shot under the working title FREAKY FRIDAY THE 13TH but since then, it had been listed as the UNTITLED CHRISTOPHER LANDON PROJECT. Today is the first day that its official title has been revealed and it's very fitting that they went with FREAKY since the body swap premise is a play on FREAKY FRIDAY.

Christopher Landon is directing and co-writing the project with Michael Kennedy also taking on writing duties. I happened to like what Landon did with HAPPY DEATH DAY and HAPPY DEATH DAY 2 U so I'm all in on what this film has to offer. By the way, FREAKY has the most perfect release date this year as it hits screens on Friday, November 13, 2020. It should be mandatory to spend Friday the 13th with a horror film and this sounds like the perfect companion.
