Happy Death Day Is the Unexpectedly Great Horror Movie You Should Go See Tonight

Let's get something out of the way right now: yes, Happy Death Day is like a mix between Groundhog Day and Scream. You know what, though? It works. Somehow it really, really works. While walking into the theater to watch the new slasher, which comes from Blumhouse Productions and the minds behind the Paranormal Activity franchise, I definitely wasn't expecting to be blown away. To be fair, I wasn't. But Happy Death Day, despite its mind-numbingly bad title (couldn't they just have left it at Death Day?), is a solidly entertaining entry into the horror-thriller genre. If you're looking for something scary to watch this October (especially with Friday the 13th weekend and Halloween happening), this movie is worth the $15 ticket. Here's why: The Premise Is Not as Annoying as It Sounds Like I mentioned above, Happy Death Day ripped off the "person relives the same day over and over

Film Review: No New Frights in Store for ‘Happy Death Day’

Chicago – “Happy Death Day” has a “Groundhog Day” gimmick, but that’s about it, offering essentially an ‘80’s style slasher flick with the hope that with a little cosmetic window dressing will help it appeal to an audience in 2017… Live, Die, Repeat. That’s all this film offers with precious few improvements to justify its existence.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

The story, such as it is, involves a self obsessed sorority sister named Tree (Jessica Rothe). She acts the way sorority sisters always do in movies like this, meaning she’s a bitch with a capital B, mean to her roommate, sleeps with her married professor, rude to her own father, and seems to live her life aiming for “Mean Girls” type perfection. She begins the day waking up in the dorm room of a college boy (Israel Broussard) she met after a few too many drinks the night before, and ends her

‘Happy Death Day’ Review

Paramount got cold feet after Rings bombed and, because of that failure, another Friday the 13th is upon audiences with no Jason stalking the multiplexes. But thanks to Blumhouse, horror fans have a reason to celebrate the thirteenth day of the month with Happy Death Day.

Tree (Jessica Rothe) wakes up Monday morning in a dorm room bed with a hangover from hell. She can’t remember the name of the guy (Israel Broussard) she went home with. Tree’s walk of shame offers no reprieve. And most embarrassing is her roommate, Lori (Ruby Modine) found out today is Tree’s birthday. Luckily she’s able to shake off the cobwebs before the big party. On her way to the party someone in a mask kills her. Tree wakes up only to relive her birthday only to be killed at the end of the night. And each death is taking its toll on her body.

'Shameless' Star Ruby Modine Explains Why She's Proud of Her Puerto Rican Roots, Teases Season 8 (Exclusive)
Ruby Modine may have a famous father, but don't let that small factor fool you -- she's worked just as hard as her peers to get to where she is today.

During a break from filming, the 27-year-old actress, best known for playing Sierra on Shameless, called Et on the phone, where she explained her journey from childhood to Hollywood.

Many of Ruby's fans know her father, Matthew Modine, who's starred in films and TV shows like Full Metal Jacket, Birdy, The Dark Knight Rises and Stranger Things. But many aren't as familiar with her Puerto Rican mother, Caridad Rivera, a makeup and wardrobe stylist.

Movie Review – Happy Death Day (2017)

Happy Death Day, 2017.

Directed by Christopher Landon.

Starring Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews, Charles Aitken, Jason Bayle, Phil Vu, and Rob Mello.

Synopsis:

A college student relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.

Sitting through Happy Death Day is akin to watching a gamer struggle through a task, dying repeatedly with no consequence until stumbling into that ‘eureka’ moment leading to success. This is even acknowledged when Carter (a college student coming off a night of drunken good times) tells his crush Tree (an ungrateful, misguided birthday girl trapped in a Groundhog Day scenario forcing her to identify and defeat her inevitable murderer) that she has unlimited shots at solving the mystery. The entire point of horror is that it keeps audiences on edge praying for the survival of the protagonists, wondering which

‘Happy Death Day’ Trailer Repeats a Killer Birthday Celebration

Jessica Rothe is ready to live, die, repeat in Happy Death Day, the latest stab at youth-oriented horror from Blumhouse. Looking like a giddy combination of Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow, the Final Destination series and a few generic slasher movies tossed in for good measure, Happy Death Day follows a young woman named Tree (just go with it), played by Rothe, who keeps re-living the same day over and over again. As if that weren’t annoying enough to begin with, it also happens to be the day in which she’s murdered by a masked killer. The only apparent way to get out of the loop is to stop the murderer once and for all.

Directed by Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones helmer Christopher Landon, Happy Death Day also stars Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews and Charles Aitken. See if you can survive the Happy Death Day trailer,
