‘Happy Death Day’ wake up, die, repeat

‘Happy Death Day’ is not a movie that makes you scream but this slasher movie has a twist of comedy and romance.

It begins with Tree Gelbman played by Jessica Rothe, a selfish sorority sister waking up on her birthday in a college dorm room where she meets the nice and naive Carter Davis played by Israel Broussard after a supposed one night stand.

She stumbles throughout her day until she’s on her way to her surprise birthday party, where she gets murdered by an attacker wearing the school’s mascot mask.

She gets up the next morning with a sense of déjà vu and a deadly end to her day.

It takes Tree three times getting killed before she realizes she needs to find out who the killer is.

Every times she dies she wakes up with pain from her last murder and every day she gets weaker.

Her life might be endless but it’s still ticking.

It’s annoying for Tree to relive the same day but it’s fun for us to watch her clumsy mistakes she does at her sorority house with her sisters, or in campus and the different ways the killer murders her.

Tree’s character isn’t pleasing at all; she’s mean and rude to most of her friends, has a fling with her married professor and sleeps with most of the guys in her school, so her suspect killer list is pretty long.

She is scared and confused but tries to find more clues about her killer within each death and in every murder she tries to step it up even if it means dying again.

She also falls in love with her intended one night stand Carter because he tried saving her life a few times and she knew he wasn’t like the other guys on campus even though he was nerdy and the total opposite to what she’s attracted to.

Tree’s run-ins with invincible fatalism leads to her in obtaining a little bit of wisdom and learns a valuable lesson from all her mistakes and all the people she hurt because of her selfish choices.

Because of those choices, she gets punished over and over and over again in hilarious but really violent ways.

If you want a film that scares the living hell out of you, ‘Happy Death Day’ isn’t the movie for you.

This movie has a fun twist with a strong lead performance by Rothe that will entertain you with a good sense of humor.
