Overheard at Table 4: Freaky (2020)


Freaky is the movie that you need to see, it is the perfect escapism from the horrors of the current COVID year.   

It's got everything: gore splatter horror, body-switching gender-bending, teen romcom.   Some people may consider it fluff, but it's really just what the doctor ordered.

Additionally, I see a lot of critics complimenting Vince Vaughan for portraying a teen female, but not enough credit is given to Kathryn Newton for playing a middle-aged hulking amoral serial killer trapped inside a 17 year old girl's body.   Her role, and the quiet cold and calculating calm with which she plans her kills is simply sublime.
