Blumhouse Productions has introduced their new slasher the Sweet 16 Killer with a new image from and promo for Totally Killer
In addition to working with slasher icon Michael Myers on the three most recent Halloween movies, Blumhouse Productions has introduced audiences to maniacs like The Grabber from The Black Phone, The Butcher from Freaky, Babyface from Happy Death Day, Lady Liberty from The Purge: Election Year, Pooka from Into the Dark: Pooka! Next up from them is the Sweet 16 Killer, the masked murderer that will be featured in the time travel slasher comedy Totally Killer, which is scheduled to begin streaming on Amazon’s Prime Video on October 6th. With that date just a month away, they have given us an early introduction to the Sweet 16 Killer with a newly unveiled image and a promo video, both of which can be seen at the bottom of this article.
Nahnatchka Khan (Always Be My Maybe) directed Totally Killer from a screenplay by Hocus Pocus 2 writer Jen D’Angelo, based on an original script by David Matalon (The Clearing) and Sasha Perl-Raver (Let’s Get Merried). The story follows Jamie (Shipka) whose mom, Pam, is terrorized by the resurgence of the Sweet Sixteen Killer — a masked maniac that slaughtered a group of teenage girls in the ‘80s. With the help of her friend Amelia, Jamie travels back in time to 1987 and teams up with the teen version of her mom (Holt) to try and stop the killer.
Shipka and Holt are joined in the cast by Kelcey Mawema as Jamie’s friend Amelia, Julie Bowen as the modern day Pam, Lochlyn Munro as Adult Blake, Charlie Gillespie as Teen Blake, Stephi Chin-Salvo as Marisa Song, Anna Diaz as Heather Hernandez, Jeremy Monn-Djasgnar as Teen Randy Finkle, Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson as Teen Lauren, Ella Choi as Teen Kara Molnar, Liana Liberato as Tiffany Clark, Nathaniel Appiah as Teen Doug Summers, and Jonathan Potts as Adult Chris Dubusage. Always Be My Maybe‘s Randall Park is also in there, playing Sheriff Dennis Lim.
Totally Killer was produced by Jason Blum for Blumhouse and Adam Hendricks and Greg Gilreath for Divide/Conquer. Khan and Chloe Yellin executive produce for Fierce Baby Productions, and Chris McCumber and Jeremy Gold are executive producing for Blumhouse Television. Brian Parker is also an executive producer on the film, which has been rated R for “bloody violence, language, sexual material, and teen drug/alcohol use“.
Khan had this to say about the project: “The idea of a horror-comedy time-travel movie is, I’m gonna be honest, something I never thought of in my life. So when I was approached by the amazing creatives at Blumhouse and Amazon about Totally Killer, it was just so unique and exciting I had to be involved. And then add this incredible cast on top of that? Everybody get readyyyyyyy.”
I was sold on Totally Killer as soon as I saw it described as a time travel slasher that’s set in the ’80s, so I can’t wait to see the Sweet 16 Killer in action. Are you interested in Totally Killer? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
