If you loved Freaky Friday with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis, but wished it was a lot more spooky, you’ll probably like Blumhouse’s latest flick. Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton’s Freaky trailer was just released and teases a similar switch-bodies plot, but with a whole lot more blood and deaths. Buckle up, ladies and gents, because this one looks like it’s going to be a wild ride.
In the film — which appropriately premierson Friday, Nov. 13 — Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton) is your average high schooler. She’s trying to navigate her social live and survive senior year, but soon becomes the target of the local serial killer called "The Butcher" (Vince Vaughn). For some reason, "The Butcher" has a mystical dagger, and he uses that to kill Kessler. But, when the knife touches her skin, the weapon’s magical properties cause them to switch bodies. They have 24 hours to swap back, or the change will be premanent. Think: Freaky Friday, but if Lindsay Lohan got swapped into some serial killer’s body instead of her mom’s.
Switching back won’t be an easy feat, however, because "The Butcher" seems to be liking his new life as a high school girl. A trailer — which dropped on Sept. 10 previews how the killer will use his new form to go after the teachers and students in the high school, and since he looks totally unassuming in Millie’s body, people don’t expect what’s coming for them. "She [Millie] 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," Universal Pcitures described.
The trailer also shows Vaughn amazingly playing the role of 17-year-old Millie in "The Butcher"’s body. It adds a hilarious element to the otherwise gorey film, which is perhaps no surprise since the writer and director behind this film is Christopher Landon, the same person who created Happy Death Day, so you know he knows how to nail the perfect balance between horror and comedy.
Freaky is slated to premiere in theatres on Friday, Nov. 13 — a perfectly appropriate day for those who want to keep the Halloween celebrations going.
