Get Freaky this January! The hit body-swap horror from Blumhouse is headed towards its home release!

 

From the twisted mind of writer-director Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day, the Paranormal Activity franchise), comes a horror-comedy about a killer, a high school senior, and the brutal truth about surviving high school.

 

In the film, “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.”

 

Celeste O’Connor Ghostbusters: AfterlifeMisha OsherovichThe Goldfinch), and Uriah Shelton, also star along with Alan Ruck (HBO’s Succession), Katie Finneran (TV’s Why Women Kill), and Dana Drori (Hulu’s High Fidelity).

 

Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day, the Paranormal Activity franchise) directed and co-wrote the horror-comedy with Michael Kennedy (Fox’s Bordertown). Jason Blum (Halloween, The Invisible Man) produces along with Blumhouse Productions in association with Divide/Conquer. Couper Samuelson and Jeanette Volturno executive produce.

 

The Killer Switch Edition continues the fun and scares with exclusive bonus content including deleted scenes, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, and a feature commentary with co-writer/director Christopher Landon.

 

“Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, Freaky slashes its way onto Digital on January 26, 2021, followed by its release on Blu-ray and DVD on February 9, 2021, from Universal Pictures.
