Spoiler Specials


Spoiling the new body-switching slasher film.


Episode Notes

This week, Sam Adams is joined by Slate’s new staff writer Karen Han to spoil Freaky, the body-switching slasher film. Think Friday the 13th meets Freaky Friday. Will high-school outcast Millie, played by Kathryn Newton, find her way back into her own body? Or will she be stuck in the body of a 6 foot 5 serial killer, played by Vince Vaughn, forever?
