Vince Vaughn has been showing his acting versatility. He does more than the sarcastic comedy role. I was a bit surprised — in a good way — by the brutal nature of his participation in Brawl In Cell Block 99, and now he’s starring in a horror-comedy vehicle from Blumhouse called, Freaky.
…can’t say director Christopher Landon doesn’t have a vision. With Happy Death Day and its sequel, the filmmaker mined a comedic concept for horror (without excising the comedic component). Now, he’s doing it again. Freaky takes the body-swap gimmick popularized by Freaky Friday and asks what might happen if a bullied teen girl switched bodies with a hulking serial killer.Freaky trailer: Freaky Friday, but horror
The official trailer:
This looks pretty entertaining and the release date, although happening after Halloween, seems well-placed.
Blumhouse, at least from attempts (not always execution) is just knocking it out of the park with horror subgenres, remakes, anthologies, they’re all over the horror map making the studio a name to reckon with in the space. Looking very forward to seeing this one, you?
Freaky is opening wide in theaters on Friday the 13th, November 2020
