Not every joke or jolt hits the mark. But thanks to a go-for-broke Vince Vaughn as a serial killer who body swaps with a teen girl, you won't find 'd a better way to laugh out loud while being scared senseless than with this 'Freaky' Friday the 13th.
November 13, 2020
Freaky is a fun, fast-paced horror comedy that hits all the right marks while mowing through tropes and honoring the best of the slasher genre.

Blumhouse has an uncanny ability to identify projects that sound compelling on paper but are less attractive when watched on-screen. Freaky is the latest of these.

It realizes there are two things in movies that never go out of fashion: a ticking clock, and a character who has to convince everyone that they are right.

Like its central character, Freaky's grisly exterior masks a heart of gold.

More intent on entertaining than making a statement... gleefully hits all the high-note screams in a semi-grounded story that earns its winks at the audience.

In between all of the murders and mayhem, there is room for some sly humor and some genuine warmth. Vaughn and Newton have a blast and it is a lot of fun.

Too often, horror-comedies either skew too far in one direction or the other. Freaky manages to excel in both, also adding some high-stakes drama and effective commentary on the genres themselves. We'll be talking about this film for a long time.

Vaughn is a delight, his 6' 5" frame flitting about with the energy of a manic teen, her insecurities made real with nervous nail-chewing and averted glances.

There's plenty of fun to be had, most notably Vince Vaughn channeling his inner teenage girl, but all that surrounds him lacks the organic flavor of Christopher Landon's previous work.
November 13, 2020
Pretty ingenious premise even if the execution mostly comes off good enough instead of great.
November 13, 2020
We can't argue "Freaky" takes the genre to the next level, exactly - but it's still bloody good fun.
November 13, 2020
Freaky is a truly entertaining slasher film that uses [its] gimmicks with an inventive flair to produce something familiar yet wholly unique at the same time.
November 13, 2020
Landon has made the jump to an R rating, which means the gore has gone up several notches from the more family-friendly Death Days. The first few kills, in particular, are real doozies.
November 13, 2020
A delightful cross between Friday the 13th, Freaky Friday and Heathers. Enormously entertaining, funny and zany.
November 12, 2020
No one is doing comedy-horror better. As with the Happy Death Day films, Freaky hilariously modernizes the high school bloodbath for laughs.
November 12, 2020
Pretty entertaining, and mostly because of Vince Vaughn.
November 12, 2020
While fans of either Freaky Friday or Friday the 13th might not get enough of what they came for in Freaky, fans of Vince Vaughn will get more than enough to keep them satisfied.

[W]e keep waiting for the promise of the conceit to be fulfilled. It gets close, especially in the movie's climactic chaos.

Newton is up to the task of embodying a relentless "murder Barbie," but most of the comedy is assigned to Vaughn, more enthusiastically committed here than in many of his recent roles.
