The first official trailer has just dropped for Nahnatchka Khan’s (Always Be My Maybe, Fresh Off the Boat) time-travel/slasher mashup Totally Killer, a film which continues Prime Video‘s collaboration with Blumhouse Television.
Directed by Khan, from a screenplay written by David Matalon & Sasha Perl-Raver and Jen D’Angelo, the film stars Kiernan Shipka (The Blackcoat’s Daughter, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”) alongside an ensemble cast which includes Julie Bowen, Olivia Holt, Randall Park, Lochlyn Munro, Charlie Gillespie, and Liana Liberato.
Totally Killer is produced by Jason Blum, Adam Hendricks, p.g.a., and Greg Gilreath, p.g.a.
The film first takes place thirty-five years after the devastating murder of three teenagers when the infamous “Sweet Sixteen Killer” resurfaces on Halloween night to claim a fourth victim. Seventeen-year-old Jamie (Shipka) disobeys her overprotective mother’s (Bowen) warnings and finds herself face-to-face with the masked maniac and in the process of fleeing for her life, accidentally time-travelling back to 1987, the year of the original murders. With no choice but to adapt to the unfamiliar and outrageous culture of the ’80s, Jamie teams up with her teenage mother (Holt) to bring the killer down once and for all before she’s trapped in the past forever.
We’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer which we’re sure will leave you eager to travel back to the ’80s and experience the outrageous culture shock through Jamie’s (Shipka) eyes when the Totally Killer premieres globally on October 6, exclusively on Prime Video.
