Bizarre Review: Happy Death Day

Happy Death Day looks creepy from the start, but it is far from it.

The movie features a college girl, living in a fraternity, who meets her untimely demise.

You would think that’s the end of the movie, but it isn’t. Blondie wakes up to start her day over, only to be met by the same ending.

Then it happens again. And again. And this goes on until she changes her view on life and discovers her true killer.

The movie is something of Groundhog Day meets I know What You Did Last Summer (Remember the Jennifer Love Hewitt screaming “what are you waiting for?”)

The movie starts off like it’s going to be a scary thriller, but it’s actually pretty funny, and plays on the ludicrous partying and scandalous lifestyles of sororities.

There is definitely a little bit of a creep factor in the beginning, but the mystery pulls you in, and the dynamics keep you giggling.

The movie isn’t really anything new, as many people have probably seen Groundhog Day, and there are a few spin offs that follow the same time loop theme. Still, it is kind of captivating, and there are quite a few funny moments.

I didn’t recognize the actors from anything, except the one room mate is from Shameless (and she’s foxy, just like the main girl). There’s even one nude scene that is more hilarious than sexy.

This poor college girl just keeps dying, and without disclosing too many details, she goes through a lot to figure out who her killer is. It could have been anyone. She’s not that likable.

Still, it’s somehow really good.

I give Happy Death Day 8 out of 10 popcorns.
