Blumhouse's Freaky: Deleted Scene Features The Worst Ride Share Driver In A Horror More
Car reliability is very important in horror movies.
When you're stuck in a horror movie, what you really want to do is get as far away from the killer as possible. However, things in the Blumhouse body-swapping film Freaky went a bit differently in a deleted scene from the home release's special features. A group of teens are racing against the clock to hunt down a killer, but they hired the slowest ride share driver of all time.
A deleted scene for the newly-released movie asks the question, "What if the getaway driver was really slow?" Well, in this situation, the teens are actually looking for the murderer, but time is of the essence, and the kids needed someone to burn rubber. This was not the case.
The Butcher, who is in Millie's body, is headed to a teenage party to do some murdering. Josh, Nyla, Millie (in the Butcher's body), and Booker are headed after him and hop into Josh's car, but the car doesn't start. This leads the gang to order a ride share, which is travelling at the blistering speed of 2 miles per hour before hitting a curb while attempting to pick them up.
Once inside the car, they find their driver liked to take things too carefully, driving under the speed limit. When pushed to drive faster, she refused to speed things up, telling the group, "Do you see me coming to your house to tell you how to hang your drapes?" Of course, this started a bizarre argument. She threatened to give Josh negative stars--even though the ride share was under Nyla's account--he proceeded to say he was going to fart in the car, and she kicked everyone out, dooming them to walk the rest of the way.
In addition to that deleted scene, the home release also includes two other deleted scenes, four featurettes, and audio commentary from co-writer and director Christopher Landon. He's a familiar name for Blumhouse fans, as Landon was the director of Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, Happy Death Day, and Happy Death Day 2U. His brand of horror comedy is one of the featurettes for Freaky.
Over on Amazon, you can pick up Freaky for $23 (originally $35, but let's be honest, that was never really the price) on Blu-ray. It is also available on DVD for $18.
The movie is also available digitally at various retailers across the internet. For those looking for more from Landon, there's an idea for a third Happy Death Day movie, but it probably won't happen any time soon. "I don't think soon is a real distinct possibility right now," he said. "But luckily, the idea that I have for the third movie doesn't rely on it being right the second, which is a good thing."
