Masked killers always bring on the nervous giggles.
Totally Killer–a new slasher-comedy feature from Blumhouse Television and Prime Video–started production this week in Vancouver, according to a report in Deadline. No release window has been announced at this time.
The film–directed by Nahnatchka Khan from a screenplay by Jen D’Angelo (based on a script by David Matalon and Sasha Perl-Raver)–stars Kiernan Shipka (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Olivia Holt (Cruel Summer), Julie Bowen (Modern Family) and Randall Park (WandaVision).
The storyline follows Jamie (Shipka), whose mom Pam (Bowen) “is terrorized by the resurgence of the Sweet Sixteen Killer–a masked maniac who slaughtered a group of teenage girls in the ’80s,” according to the synopsis.
With the help of her friend Amelia (Kelcey Mawema), Jamie “travels back in time to 1987 and teams up with the teen version of her mom (Holt) to stop the killer.”
Khan said the idea of a horror-comedy time travel film is “something I never thought of in my life. So, when I was approached by Blumhouse and Amazon, it was just so unique and exciting that I had to be involved.”
The film’s producers are Jason Blum and Adam Hendricks, with Khan, Chloe Yellin, Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold and Brian Parker serving as executive producers.
