Happy Death Day (2017) Movie Review: This Ain't Your Momma's Groundhog Day, Sonny

by Banned Library in

A world exists where you are dead. Someone or something killed you, just for shits and giggles. The world is a dark and dangerous place. Or happier. I don't know you.

    So what would happen if you could remember that world? What if when that thing or person killed you, you got to start over like in Groundhog Day, reliving the day again? That's how Tree (Rothe, and yeah, that's the character's name) finds herself on her birthday.

    Go see this movie. Not because it's the best movie of the year, but because I want more movies like this. If you haven't already, go see this movie and then go on Netflix and watch The Babysitter as a double feature because I want more fun horror movies out there.

    You know how murder movies normally have disposable, hateful characters that you want to die at the killer's hands as soon as possible? This movie has that. Then the shitty character dies… and dies again… and again… and then learns not to be shitty. It's really damn good for what it is, it knows what it is, and it let's things play out like they will.

    Will you guess the killer? Sure. Will you care? I dunno, you're you. You know if that kind of shit matters to you. I just enjoy well told, solid movies that have laughs and jumps.
