Blumhouse (Split, Get Out, The Purge) produces an original and inventive rewinding thriller in Happy Death Day, in which a college student relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.
It’s Groundhog Day, but with murder. Lots and lots of murder. There’s only so much you can do with the Groundhog Day concept, and everything in this movie has been done before, though there’s a nice twist to the whole ordeal towards the end of the movie that I’d like to not spoil, but it made the movie much more enjoyable after the main character shed her horrid sorority girl persona and became an actual human.
Was delighted to see Bear Mccreary’s name pop up in the credits, I’m sure that no matter what your favorite type of tv or movie is, you’ve heard and likely enjoyed his work before.
