It’s pretty unusual that anything really new and different comes along in the horror movie genre, but someone had the idea to combine ‘Freaky Friday’ with a serial killer movie and it looks like it’s going to be an absolute blast.

Vince Vaughn is on board as a serial killer called ‘The Butcher’ who ends up swapping bodies with teenager Kathryn Newton from ‘Big Little Lies’ and it looks like the pair of them get into a whole heap of trouble because of it judging by the trailer. Take a look at that below and you can read the official synopsis underneath that as well:
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.
With some help from her friends—ultra-woke Nyla (Celeste O’Connor, Ghostbusters: Afterlife), ultra-fabulous Joshua (Misha Osherovich, The Goldfinch) and her crush Booker (Uriah Shelton, Enter the Warriors Gate)—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.
That just looks like a lot of fun even though people are dying all the way through it, right? Love that it’s scheduled to come out on Friday 13th November as well – you can’t really get better marketing than that for a horror movie can you? Hopefully we don’t head into a second lockdown and it still manages to get released.
