Sarah Beth Edwards’ Fall Back Down is the cinematic personification of living in a big punk house with a ton of roommates. It’s fun and chaotic, random and strange, frustrating and complicated, full of wild characters, and leads you into all sorts of off-kilter adventures.

And it’s never going to wind up where you expect.

So yeah, if he wants to do the same with Freaky Friday, I’m game. And here is the first trailer for his attempt at just that, Freaky.
