Happy Death Day is pretty much horror version of Groundhog Day starting Bill Murray.
A college girl named Tree gets murdered by a mysterious person on a mask. But she is re-living the same day over day over and over again in a loop. Now she has to figure out who the killer is and try to stop this loop.
The Review (Spoiler Free)
Happy Death Day don’t hide the fact that the movie is pretty much same as the Groundhog Day. In fact, it plays as a satire of Groundhog Days. Happy Death Day is pretty much is a murder mystery. But has bit of comedy element to it and the movie don’t take itself too seriously.
Even though it is very similar to Grounddog Day movie, it is still lots of fun. Mostly because of the strong performnce by the lead actress Jessica Rothe. We see her as an angry and mean girl in the beginning of the movie, but towards the end, she transformed into very likeable person (which is pretty the same story as Grounddog Day) Also, just like Groundhog Days, it does have bit of romantic story behind it.
Happy Death Day isn’t completely same as Groundhog Day. It does have a surprise twist ending. Let just say that the person you think is the killer is not the killer. Once you think the movie is over, it keep going.
On the side note, if you haven’t seen Groundhog Day yet, I suggest you watch Groundhog Days. It is not a horror film but it is far better movie. It is very creative and original romantic comedy. Its cult-classic.
