Writer Confirms Blumhouse’s FREAKY Was Originally Called FREAKY FRIDAY THE 13TH

Blumhouse and Happy Death Day director Christopher Landon’s horror-comedy Freaky with Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton looks like fun. And today co-writer Michael Kennedy revealed the film was originally called Freaky Friday the 13th.

Check out his tweet HERE.

Here’s the trailer.

Directed by Landon from a script he wrote with Michael Kennedy, the film is described as a twisted take on the body-swap genre, and centers on high school student Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton) who becomes the newest target of the Butcher (Vince Vaughn), an infamous serial killer, during her senior year. When the killer’s magic dagger causes her to swap bodies with him, she discovers she has only a day to reverse the switch or remain trapped as a middle-aged murderer hunted by the city, while the real killer targets her classmates at Homecoming.

Rated R for “strong bloody horror violence, sexual content, and language” it co-stars Celeste O’Connor, Misha Osherovich, Uriah Shelton, Dana Drori, Katie Finneran, and Alan Ruck. Freaky is set to hit theaters on November the 13th.
