This year New York Comic Con (NYCC) is virtual, as the majority of conventions and events this year have been. But that doesn’t mean it will slow down on the fun they have lined up for fans.
Today at 3:40 p.m. PDT/6:40 p.m. EST there will be a virtual panel about the upcoming body-swap slasher flick Freaky. The panel, which will be moderated by Variety’s Jenelle Riley, will feature writer and director Christopher Landon, Vince Vaughn, Kathryn Newton, Celeste O’Connor, and Misha Osherovich. You can tune into the panel on the NYCC Youtube channel.

The movie will follow high school senior Millie Kessler (Kathryn Newton) when she switches bodies with the town’s serial killer, The Butcher. She has 24 hours to get her body back, or they are stuck like that forever. Once she gets her friends to believe the new, hopefully temporary, her is not the killer, they have to go track down her body. Meanwhile, the serial killer is taking advantage of his new body and goes on a killing spree. Watch the trailer below!
Keeping with the thriller movie vibe will be the panel for The 355. The Entertainment Weekly’s Women Who Kick Ass Panel will feature Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Diane Kruger, and Bingbing Fan. EW’s Devan Coggan will moderate the October 10, 4:50 p.m. PDT/7:50 p.m. EST panel. You can tune into the panel here.
