Greg Akerman and Steve Cross (Chaotic Adequate podcast) join Flixwatcher to review Greg’s choice Happy Death Day.

 

Happy Death Day is a 2017 comedic horror film from Blumhouse starring Jessica Rothe trapped and reliving the same day until she is brutally murdered directed by Christopher (Paranormal Activity) Landon.

Essentially a horror version of Groundhog Day, in Happy Death Day Theresa/Tree (Rothe) is forced to relive the same day over and over – except in this version it always ends with her brutal death – on her birthday. The only way to stop the loop is by trying to figure out who is trying to kill her.

What Happy Death Day lacks in horror or gore it makes up for it with humour and absurd deaths. While Happy Death Day retreads familiar time loop cliches and tropes it does so it an unapologetic and ridiculous way that if you can forgive all that you’ll have a lovely time.

Scores

Despite Steve hating pretty much everything about it, Happy Death Day still scores a fairly decent 3.57 overall.
