FREAKY
2020, Universal, USA, Dir: Christopher Landon

From the deliciously debased mind of writer-director Christopher Landon (HAPPY DEATH DAY, the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchise) comes a pitch-black horror-comedy about a slasher, a senior and the brutal truth about high school. Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton) is just trying to survive the cruelty of the popular crowd at Blissfield High when the 17-year-old becomes the newest target of The Butcher (Vince Vaughn), her town’s infamous serial killer. But The Butcher’s mystical dagger causes him and Millie to wake up in each other’s bodies, a change that will become permanent in 24 hours. With 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.
