| Film Synopsis |
Prepare for a Freaky take on the body-swap movie which only Blumhouse (makers of Happy Death Day & The Purge Franchise) could bring: a teenage girl switches bodies with a relentless serial killer! High school senior Millie (Kathryn Newton, Blockers, HBO's Big Little Lies) is just trying to survive being the unpopular kid when she becomes The Butcher's (Vince Vaughn) next target. Their fateful encounter gets twisted and they wake up in each other's bodies. Now looking like a towering psychopath, Millie learns she only has 24 hours to reverse the curse and get her body back before the switch becomes permanent and she's trapped in the form of a middle-aged maniac forever.

| Overall Reaction |
"FREAKY" is a fun traditional slasher horror flick. Christopher Landon brings us another great film. The lead performances are terrific and truly the reason to give this one a watch. Extras include some deleted scenes and some minor featurettes. Delivering a solid video and excellent audio, I would recommend this release.
