The good people at Blumhouse (Happy Death Day, Freaky) have unleashed another knowing, blood-soaked slasher with Totally Killer. This time, a teenager (Kiernan Shipka) travels back to 1987 to prevent a sadistic killer from murdering her mother in the future. Nahnatchka Khan (Always Be My Maybe) directs from a screenplay by David Matalon and Sasha Perl-Raver with Jen D'Angelo. The film is produced by Jason Blum and co-produced by Chloe Yellin for Fierce Baby Productions, Adam Hendricks for Divide/Conquer, and Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold, and Chris Dickie for Blumhouse Television. The film will release in limited theaters in October before arriving on Netflix on Nov. 10. Rounding out the cast are Charles Parnell, Arliss Howard, Kerry O'Malley, Sophie Charlotte, Sala Baker and Tilda Swinton.

The Killer will mark the latest collaboration between Fincher and Netflix after working on both House of Cards and Mindhunter. The streamer has a mixed track record with comic book adaptations, but this one looks like it might be worth the wait. Based on the 1998 comic book of the same name by writer Matt Ziffren and artist Luc Jacamon, The Killer also stars Tilda Swinton who has never worked with Fincher before. Andrew Kevin Walker wrote the screenplay and cinematographer Erik Messerschmidt works with Fincher on multiple films including Seven, Fight Club and Mindhunter.
