Director Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day) directs this horror film, “Freaky” that is slated to open InCinemas this November. 

Freaky is a body-swap movie like Disney's Freaky Friday, but definitely much, much darker and scarier. Instead of swapping bodies with the ‘boring mom’ in the Lindsay Lohan-tween movie, this time the teenage protagonist switches bodies with a relentless serial killer. 

Seventeen-year-old Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton, Blockers, HBO’s Big Little Lies) 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.

Freaky opens InCinemas November 26.
