Blumhouse’s body-swap bloodbath Freaky with Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton snagged #1 at the box office again this weekend. And today we hear the flick hits Premium VOD platforms next week on December 4th.
Freaky is written and directed by Christopher Landon and produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum.
17-year-old Millie Kessler (Newton) is just trying to survive the bloodthirsty halls of high school. But when she becomes the target of an infamous serial killer (Vaughn). Then a mystical ancient dagger causes them wake up in each other’s bodies. Millie now has 24 hours before 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), ultra-fabulous Joshua (Misha Osherovich) and her crush Booker (Uriah Shelton)—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.
Blumhouse’s Freaky has a B- Cinemascore. It also sports an 84% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: An entertaining slasher with a gender-bending, body-swapping twist, this horror-comedy juggles genres with Freaky fun results.

Once again for the cheap seats, Freaky hits Premium VOD on December 4th.
