Movie Review: Happy Death Day

Happy Death Day review

Happy Death Day
Directed by Christopher Landon
Written by Scott Lobdell
Starring Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Charles Aitken, Laura Clifton, Rob Mello
Blumhouse Productions
Rated R| 96 Minutes
Release Date: October 13, 2017

If you’ve watched the trailer forHappy Death Day, then you know exactly what you are walking into. The writer and director make no effort to hide their influences, to the point of literally name-droppingGroundhog Dayand Bill Murray IN the movie. One character’s last name is even credited as “Spengler” (Harold Ramis was Egon Spengler inGhostbusters). That said, if you’re gonna walk the line between parody and homage, you better be careful and to their credit, writerScott Lobdelland directorChristopher Landondo a pretty great job. In order for this to work, likeGroundhog Day, the lead character and actor playing them has to be convincing. While I’m not comparingHappy Death Day'sJessica Rotheto Bill Murray, she does do one hell of a job here and the results are a perfect little 95-minute meta-slasher film right in time for Halloween [...]
