Hello my Friends and a Happy Friday The 13th to you all. It’s my hope that it hasn’t been an overly creepy one at the onset because let’s face it, 2020 has been a bit of a disaster already. So today I’m back for one final time to share some news about the film “Freaky” which opens up today in a number of theaters. We’ve already shared the Official Trailer and the Slaughterhouse Clip so click that hyperlinked text to see them if you’d like and then peruse the official poster, premise and casting on this one before I close it up.
The Premise: Tormented high school student, Millie Kessler, becomes the newest target of Barney Garris, an infamous serial killer known as the Blissfield Butcher, during her senior year. When the killer’s magic dagger causes her to swap bodies with him, Millie discovers she has only a day to reverse the switch or else remain trapped as a middle-aged murderer hunted by the city, while the real killer – in her body – targets her classmates at Homecoming.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I really got a kick out of the two trailers and love adding Horror/Comedy stuff like this to the content in our Pop Culture narratives, I will most likely be passing on this one for the moment. I don’t know what the rest of you think, but for the moment I am not too keen on sitting in any kind of theater to watch something. I know the VOD release will be soon also but lately these have been a little pricy and like most of you we need to be smart with the funding until more “normal” returns to our way of life. For those who do wish to check this out, I’d think its along the same lines of “Happy Death Day” and more of a Black Comedy. So what do you think? Will you be catching this one? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
