After two Freaky Friday's (one with Jodie Foster and one with Lindsay Lohan), Big with Tom Hanks or 13 Going on 30 with Jennifer Garner, the body swap concept is hardly original. Production house Blumhouse, known for Paranormal Activity, The Invisible Man and The Purge, is not looking for originality but for hits.
In the horror comedy Freaky, it is not a mother and daughter who change bodies but Blissfield Butcher and Millie: a serial killer transferred from a 1980s slasher film and a 17-year-old smart but shy high school student. She is surprised that she can pee standing up. He can no longer rely on brute force to quench his bloodlust. Flavour it with a bucket of popcorn.
