  • Duration: 1h42
  • My rating: 7/10
  • Mid- or post-credit scene: no


After swapping bodies with a deranged serial killer, a young girl in high school discovers she has less than 24 hours before the change becomes permanent.

Review: (slight spoilers)

What do you get if you combine Freaky Friday with Friday the 13th and Scream? Right, a f**cked up funny slasher movie… the funny parts were when Vaughn has to pretend to be a girl in a man’s body. The usual jokes (men do have balls, you know!) but it works… even a fall by Vaughn that wasn’t in the script but was kept in the movie is very funny…

But the slasher bit disappoints a little bit… not that I’m a freak (or a freaky) but when I watch a slasher I want dead bodies and original kills throughout the movie. The story was more centred on the ‘switching bodies part’ than on the slasher part…

And there’s even a positive message in the movie that no matter what you look like, you’re always loved by someone (and that leads to a surprising kiss, honestly) 🤣

So fun, funny at times… but not enough kills… I did like the nods to other slashers (one of first kills even had a Scream-like nod! Parents discovering the body)

If you know it was made by them that made Happy Death Day 1 & 2, you know what you can get)
