Quite A Combination
Khan had this to say about the film’s appeal:
“The idea of a horror-comedy time travel movie is, I’m gonna be honest, something I never thought of in my life. So when I was approached by the amazing creatives at Blumhouse and Amazon about Totally Killer, it was just so unique and exciting I had to be involved. And then add this incredible cast on top of that? Everybody get readyyyyyyy.”
Totally Killer is part of the Blumhouse Television/Amazon Prime Video 2018 deal for eight films. Jason Blum producers with Adam Hendricks and Greg Gilreath.
Holt was last seen in Freeform’s Cruel Summer, a show that created an incredible amount of social media buzz. Long after the first season ended it was then revealed that the show would be an anthology series. One with a completely new cast offering fans no closure on the story so far.
Shipka was last seen as Sabrina Spellman making her long awaited crossover appearance on the CW’s Riverdale. Fans had been clamouring for Shipka who played Sabrina on Netflix’ Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to appear for years.
