The plot of the movie Freaky
“prepare to be shocked by a twisted version of the body swapping movie where a young girl swaps her body with a relentless serial killer”
Seventeen-year-old Millie Kessler is trying to survive the bloodthirsty classrooms of Blissfield High and the cruelty of the popular crowd. But when she becomes the new target of the Butcher, her town’s notorious serial killer, her senior year becomes the least of her worries.
When the Butcher’s ancient mystical dagger causes him and Millie to wake up in each other’s bodies, Millie learns she has only 24 hours to get her body back before the switch becomes permanent and she is trapped forever in the body of a middle-aged maniac.
The only problem is, he now looks like a towering psychopath, the subject of a citywide manhunt. While the Butcher looks like him and brought his lust for carnage to the Homecoming.
With the help of her super smart friend Nyla, super fabulous Joshua and her flame Booker, Millie races against time to lift the curse.
Meanwhile, the Butcher discovers that having the body of a teenage girl is the perfect cover for a little killing spree at the Homecoming.
