Happy Death Day
Happy Death Day is a 2017 American film directed by Christopher B. Landon and written by Scott Lobdell. The film was originally titled “Half to Death,” and was to be produced by Michael Bay. Years later, on October 11, 2016, Blumhouse Productions announced that Jessica Rothe had been cast in the lead role for the film, with Christopher B. Landon writing and directing this film and the title of this film changed with “Happy Death Day.”
Happy Death Day is a deliciously wicked treat with fun twists and a strong lead performance by Jessica Rothe. It won’t scare you, but it will entertain you with a cynical sense of humor and a few clever new twists on a familiar formula.
Happy Death Day is one of the films that does Groundhog Day well. It’s a playfully dark comedy about a sorority student named Tree (Jessica Rothe), who is having a pretty normal, selfish, vapid day until a maniac in a baby mask kills her right at the end of it. Instead of staying dead, she wakes up at the start of the day, knowing everything that’s going to happen to her. She tries to avoid getting killed the same way and then dies another way and goes right back to the beginning. And so on
