Here is my review for “Happy Death Day“. A slasher movie with a heart of gold. The movie begins with a girl named Tree starting her birthday out waking up in some guys bed in a dorm room. She is hung over and moody. She heads to her sorority and goes through the day and ends up getting chased and killed by someone wearing a baby mask. Then is surprised when she wakes back up in the same guys dorm room again from that morning. Starting the whole goddamn day over again. She has deja vu all day and the killer shows up again and kills her in a different way. The movie gets more nuts and nuts as she gets killed all kinds of ways over and over again. Will she every get out of this crazy ass Groundhog Day! Will she find out who the killer is? Will she love the guy in the dorm room?
Okay this movie is nuts! You see her ass get murdered so many times, but it’s a lot of fun and funny too. Jessica Rothe plays Tree and she was great, somebody put her ass in more horror movies ASAP. She is a scream queen for sure. I loved her! Her mix of comedy and terror was a deal sealer! Israel Broussard was the dorm room guy and her love interest and he was cool too. They made a cool team. By the end of the film you really dug both of them and wanted them to live. You even felt that Tree learned something about life and how to be a better person and shit. It really was the feel good movie of the year. They did a great job balancing horror with emotions. Usually it’s just body count, but since it’s just her body dying on loop you get to know her and like her. Also you got your slasher feel too. Think crazy death scenes like in “Friday the 13th”. If you are looking for a fun/funny slasher horror film this is it. I love it and I loved the crazy way all the shit played out. It was a cool idea for a horror film and it’s worth the watch.
A. Jessica Rothe (She was in La La Land as somebody?) plays Tree. A weird ass name but I guess you remember it. I love her in it. I hope she pops in more horror movies. Make her the new Scream Queen she is fun and memorable as fuck. Look at all her looks in this movie.
B. Here is the killers mask. It was the colleges teams mask.
C. Christopher Landon directed this movie. He directed Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and wrote Disturbia, Paranormal Activity 2, 3 and 4. His father is Michael Landon from Little House on the Prairie.
D. You will learn how to learn how to live your shitty life better.
F. There is another cool Birthday horror movie.
With an amazing theme song!!!!
