(2020) (Kathryn Newton, Vince Vaughn) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror Comedy: A teenage girl has 24 hours to reverse an ancient Aztec curse that's caused her to switch bodies with a hulking serial killer.
Things aren't going great for high school senior Millie Kessler (KATHRYN NEWTON). While she has good friends in classmates Nyla (CELESTE O'CONNOR) and Josh (MISHA OSHEROVICH) and has a boy, Booker (URIAH SHELTON), who seems interested in her, she must contend with bullies of both genders at school and a mom at home, Coral (KATIE FINNERNAN), who's still reeling from her husband's death a year ago. While Millie has put her life on hold to support her mom, her cop sister, Charlene (DANA DRORI), has a strained relationship with their mom, especially regarding the latter's drinking.
But that seems like nothing compared to what happens next. And that's an encounter of The Butcher of Blissfield (VINCE VAUGHN), long believed to be just a longstanding rumor, but who turns out to be a very real serial killer. When he tries to murder Millie with an ancient Aztec dagger he's recently acquired, his aim is off and he only wounds her. But due to the spell on that dagger, they end up switching bodies in the middle of the night. Suddenly the killer finds himself in a teenage girl's body while she finds herself stuck in the hulking body of the maniac.
With just 24 hours before the body-switching curse becomes permanent, Millie tries to convince her scared friends that it's really her, all while The Butcher bemoans being stuck in a weaker body, but likes the fact that he now has the perfect cover to continue his murder spree.
