New Trailer for 'Happy Death Day' Director's 'Freaky' Offers Up More Body-Swapping Hijinks


Just ahead of its panel at this week's first annual "BlumFest," Universal Pictures has premiered a new trailer for Christopher Landon‘s (Happy Death Day) body-swapping comedy-slasher Freaky.


Freaky releases in theaters on Friday, November 13th.


The film presents a twisted take on the body-swap movie when a teenage girl switches bodies with a relentless serial killer.


In Freaky, "Seventeen-year-old Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton) is just trying to survive the bloodthirsty halls of Blissfield High and the cruelty of the popular crowd. But when she becomes the newest target of The Butcher (Vince Vaughn), her town’s infamous serial killer, her senior year becomes the least of her worries."


"When The Butcher’s mystical ancient dagger causes him and Millie to wake up in each other’s bodies, Millie learns that she has just 24 hours to get her body back before the switch becomes permanent and she’s trapped in the form of a middle-aged maniac forever. 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."


"With some 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."


The film also stars Alan Ruck ("Succession"), Katie Finneran ("Why Women Kill"), and Dana Drori ("High Fidelity").


Freaky is written by Landon and Michael Kennedy (Fox’s "Bordertown") and is produced by Jason Blum (Halloween, The Invisible Man). The film is produced by Blumhouse Productions in association with Divide/Conquer.


The executive producers are Couper Samuelson and Jeanette Volturno.
