Wake Up. Live your Life. Get Killed. Again.
Happy Death Day takes the revered formula of Groundhog Day and mashes it up with a modern college slasher flick. The premise seems so simple that it’s a surprise that it took until 2017 to be executed. Once again Blumhouse Productions (Get Out, Split) is hoping that this slick concept will translate to yet another 2017 low-budget horror hit.
Jessica Rothe plays the protagonist Tree Gelbman as she is repeatedly murdered in increasingly creative ways on her birthday. Each time she relives her final 24 hours she gets closer and closer to figuring out who is coming after her and why. It seems more like a video game than a movie but this movie walks the line well and delivers a satisfying entry into slasher film canon.
