Kiernan Shipka Faces an Infamous Killer In First Trailer For Blumhouse’s ‘Totally Killer’

Kiernan Shipka, Olivia Holt and Randall Park star in this bloody time travel comedy.

The trailer for Totally Killer has just been released and needs to be on your October horror movie watchlist. The comedic horror stars Kiernan Shipka.

The trailer introduces us to some of the cast members. Shipka, known for her role in the (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and (Let it Snow), is starring in this Back to the Future-like horror movie. Joining her as her mom as a teen in 1987 is Olivia Holt. Holt is known for her TV show (Kickin’ It) from Disney XD and movies like (Girl vs. Monster) and (Status Update). Randall Park (Always Be My Maybe) and (WandaVision) also stars in the film. Though he’s not in the trailer, fans of the canceled Netflix show (Julie and the Phantoms) might recognize Charlie Gillespie as Teen Blake.

Trailer Screams 

The trailer begins by showing the main character talking to the cops about how she knows a murder is going to happen that very night. In a comedic-like fashion, the cops ignore her statement about the murder and focus on her line about being in a situation similar to Back to the Future. Here, the cops comment that time travel movies never make sense. Furthermore, in 1987, after befriending her teenage mom, the mom’s friends take them to a secluded cabin, which even Jamie notes isn’t smart with a killer on the loose. This is comedic, as protagonists in horror movies never seem smart enough to realize something like that. Usually, they go into danger without realizing it. Yet it would be something the audience knew was wrong. Totally Killer was made by the same producers as M3gan, known as Blumhouse. The film is directed by Nahnatchka Khan.

The Bloody Details

Totally Killer follows an infamous killer who returns thirty-five years after killing three teens to murder a fourth victim. Jamie, the daughter of the three victims’ friend. Jamie is 17 and is attacked by the masked killer on Halloween night. In an attempt to survive, she somehow manages to time-travel back to 1987. Adapting to her new surroundings, Jamie enlists the help of her teenage mom to stop the infamous murderer. In the trailer, it seems Jamie’s mom is very skeptical about Jamie wandering the streets on Halloween, especially alone. It looks like the killer accidentally stabs a machine at a carnival that isn’t open while missing Jamie, which sends her back to 1987. 

Don’t Miss It 

Totally Killer will be available to watch on Prime Video on October 6, arriving just in time for spooky season. This film is a must-see for horror and time travel fans. If this movie is anything like the other movies produced by Blumhouse, like Insidious, Freaky, Happy Death Day, or The Black Phone, this horror movie will be an annual watch. The first trailer only dropped on Wednesday, September 13. Hopefully, more sneak peeks will be released in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned for more information!
