Universal Pictures blessed us this week with the first trailer for ‘Freaky‘ starring Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton.
The body-swap horror comedy film stars Newton as a 17-year-old girl named Millie, who is stuck being the girl no one knows in high school.
But when she becomes the newest target of Vaughn’s Butcher, 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.
Obviously we’ve seen similar stories before (Freaky Friday for one) but they’ve mostly been straight comedies. The added element of horror should make this a fresh take on an old twist.
The trailer looks pretty entertaining, but you may want to stop halfway in, or else you risk seeing the entire movie.
It’s set to hit theaters November 13, 2020.
