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.

2019, Universal, 100 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Landon

Jessica Rothe leads the returning cast of HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U, the follow-up to Blumhouse’s (SPLIT, GET OUT, THE PURGE series) surprise 2017 smash hit of riveting, repeating twists and comic turns. This time, our hero Tree Gelbman (Rothe) discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.


HAPPY DEATH DAY
2017, Universal, 96 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Landon

SCREAM meets GROUNDHOG DAY in this darkly comedic slasher hit from Blumhouse Productions. University student Theresa "Tree" Gelbman (Jessica Rothe, in a breakout performance) caps off her birthday by getting murdered – only to wake up and re-experience the day’s events. As the process repeats itself, Tree gathers clues to stop her killer and escape the endless loop. “A snappy horror-comedy with a gentle romantic spine.” - Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times.
