SYNOPSIS:

Blumhouse (Split, Get Out, Paranormal Activity series) produces an original and inventive rewinding thriller in HAPPY DEATH DAY, in which a college student (Jessica Rothe, La La Land) relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.  HAPPY DEATH DAY is directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones).

REVIEW:

Nerida:

As someone who has seen a few movies in my time, I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun I had watching HAPPY DEATH DAY.  The movie doesn’t take itself too seriously, which is definitely for the best. If anyone walks into a movie about a sorority girl living the same day over and over, and being killed over and over, and expects it to be some genre-defying horror perfection – that’s on them.

However, that doesn’t mean this is a bad movie by any means. Jessica Rothe as Tree Gelbman and Israel Broussard as Carter Davis are fantastic as the two leads. They have excellent chemistry and make us root for them. Rothe’s character wasn’t the typical horror movie sorority girl, either. She was cunning and badass. She made us believe she could actually figure this mess out.

There are curve balls thrown left and right –  You think the movie is about to end on at least two different occasions. The script is smart, there’s horror, there’s comedy, there’s drama, and of course, a little romance. Happy Death Day takes you in numerous directions, while also making sure you have fun along the way. This is definitely one of my favourite campy horror flicks out there. It even pokes fun at Groundhog Day, which it very clearly took some inspiration from. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys horror; again, it doesn’t redefine the genre and there are definitely an abundance of clichés. With that, though, there are still a handful of clever moments I certainly was not expecting.

  1. I would like to go for paintball, followed by lunch near a beach with few mates and then go for bowling and dinner.

  2. Celebrate by going out to dinner, with my family

  3. Conveniently forgetting I’m another year older (>30) and celebrating with outrageously unhealthy cakes (covered in 100s and 1000s a fave).
