Universal Pictures’ horror comedy Freaky topped both the Vudu and FandangoNow charts for the week ended Dec. 6.
Both are transactional video-on-demand services owned by Fandango.
Available as a premium rental, the film, starring Kathryn Newton and Vince Vaughn, follows 17-year-old Millie Kessler who spends her days trying to survive high school and the cruel actions of the popular crowd. When she becomes the latest target of the Butcher, the town’s infamous serial killer, her senior year becomes the least of her worries.
The drama Let Him Go, also available as a premium rental, fell from No. 1 the previous week to No. 2 on both charts. It stars Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as a retired sheriff and his wife who leave their Montana ranch to rescue their young grandson from the clutches of a dangerous family living off the grid in the Dakotas.
Taking the bronze (falling from No. 2) on the Vudu chart was Love and Monsters, available for digital purchase. The film takes place seven years after a “monsterpocalypse” — giant monsters taking over the Earth’s surface — forces all of humanity to move into underground colonies.
Coming in at No. 3 on the FandangoNow chart was Fatman, starring Mel Gibson as a frustrated Santa Claus who is targeted by a rich kid who received a lump of coal for his selfishness. The kid hires an assassin to kill Santa.
With the holidays approaching, classics Elf and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation landed among the top 10.
