|~ The Butcher in Millie Kessler's body.|
|“||Well, don't stop. Keep coming. I've been in your body. I understand why you feel so weak. Why you feel so meager. And all that anxiety that you got. Clinging to your dead dad. You're really just a lesser version of her. And having to take all those orders from some drunk mom. But it's all right. It's okay. We'll fix it.||„|
|~ The Butcher to Millie, moments before his death.|
Quentin Shermer (also known as the Blissfield Butcher) is the main antagonist of the 2020 black comedy horror film Freaky. At first everyone believed it's an urban legend or a ghost, till they know he is real, and the Blissfield Butcher poses a threat to those who mention his name or even see him.
He was portrayed by Vince Vaughn in his main physical body form (who also played Norman Bates in the 1998 remake of Psycho, Rick Barnes in Domestic Disturbance, Reese Feldman in the 2004 adaptation of Starsky & Hutch and Wes Mantooth in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) and by Kathryn Newton (who also played Ditto in the guise of Lucy Stevens in Pokemon: Detective Pikachu) in Millie Kessler's body.
This monster can be described as silent, dangerous and very threatening to the public. He kills anyone or anything that stands in his way without any remorse or guilt, enjoys killing as a hobby and doing illegal drugs.
After switching bodies with Millie Kessler he can be very scary and rude whenever he talks to someone without raising suspicion as he pretends to be Brett's crush. When they switch back to their own bodies he tries to kill the Kessler family one last time and mocking Millie's body as a weakness.
He also has very bad table manners such as eating breakfast when in Millie's body as a pig by scarfing it all down in one go, revealing he hasn't had a real meal in a while and poor personal hygiene as Millie says the Butcher's body smells and tastes like hot dog water.
The Butcher has been a wanted criminal for years ever since 1977, he has been stalking and killing lots of people, while wearing a mask to hide his face and hides out somewhere in the Old Mill in order to keep a low profile.

As Millie tried to escape from the Butcher he manages to pin her down on the football oval, as he was trying to stab her, Millie manages to remove his mask and reveal his real face. After successing stabbing Millie on the left shoulder, they both got hurt, much to his confusion. Then after hearing gunshots from Millie's older sister Char, he manages to flee the scene and decides to retreat into his hideout somewhere in the Old Mill.

As they were walking to class, Ryler one of Millie's chief tormentor's tries to get all the information from the incident by gossiping it to the public, the Butcher posing as Millie attempts to kill her with a fire extinguisher, but decided not to, as Ryler believes that "Millie" is wasting her time. Millie in the Butcher's body sneaks into school to have a shower since his body smells like hot dog water and avoid the police due to his face being recognized to the public.

She tries to warn the Butcher (in Millie's body) that the "Butcher" is there, and he tells her that she needs to hide. He locks Ryler in a cryotherapy tank in the girl's locker room, which causes her to freeze to death. After Millie (in the Butcher's body) finishes her shower, she discovers that Ryler was frozen by the Butcher, then checks to see if she's alive.

Millie performs the school's mascot dance routine asking personal questions only the real Millie would know and their handshake. After regaining their friends trust, in the boys toilets they researched the dagger known as La Dola and asked a teacher who speaks Spainsh Señora Cayenes can translate what type of dagger this is. After some confusion from the Spanish teacher Ms. Cayenes explains to Joshua and Nyla that if the sacrifice is not successful that the two persons have swapped and the change becomes permanent after 24 hours. As Millie was waiting for Nyla and Joshua to come and pick her up she saw a lot of rude images in the boys toilets.

- His real name was never revealed in the film or in the credits, although according to Happy Death Day Wiki, his real name is Quentin Shermer.
- The Butcher has no backstory on why he became a serial killer in the first place.
- It said that the Butcher was killing since the 1970s and still continued until his death in 2020. Ironically, his actor Vince Vaugh was born in the year 1970 which would also be thought of as a goof since Vaugh would’ve still been a child in the 70s before becoming a middle aged man in 2020s.
