CLEVELAND, Ohio — Screenwriter Michael Kennedy has been obsessed with slasher movies since he was a teenager.

That’s why the North Olmsted native calls “Freaky,” the horror-comedy he co-wrote with “Happy Death Day” director Christopher Landon premiering in theaters Friday, “a dream come true.”

“I’m super excited for the movie to open, but I’m also a little nervous for people to go see it in a theater, to be honest with you,” Kennedy says, adding no COVID-19 cases have been traced back to movie theaters. “That makes me feel a lot better about people going out and seeing it.”
