Critic Reviews for Happy Death Day
Happy Death Day isn't particularly scary, and clearly isn't meant to be - the pleasure lies in the games it plays with its basic storyline, along the way tossing in enough offbeat humour and whodunnit twists to keep us entertained.
If you can't enjoy [Happy Death Day], give up on film.
On another level, Happy Death Day is a low-key celebration of cinema. Landon and Lobdell revel in how their story could only happen in the movies, piling on preposterous complications with self-aware glee.
One of the most breezily enjoyable teen movies of recent years.
Landon's scary movie offers a short, sharp shock to the system. Let it make your day.
Audience Reviews for Happy Death Day
Surprised by how good this was. Truly horrible character that you kind of want to die (until you inevitably start to understand her, of course). It was funnier than I expected too and not taking itself seriously.
The idea is, of course, not the most original, but at least this is an effective combination of slasher and Groundhog Day that can be quite funny and entertaining, with nice twists, inspired deaths and a killing performance by Jessica Rothe to make it worth watching.
Okay, the conceit is not original. Harold Ramis' family probably wishes that their dad had copyrighted the idea of characters who keep reliving entire days over and over again as a cinematic vehicle and then charged them a percentage for the use of it. Pass that, the use of the conceit is not terrible. It's adequate. The young starlet plays her part well, as does the supporting cast. Only the box office will tell if we're watching the start of another tongue-in-cheek horror franchise.The store that sells the knives they always use in these movies will never go out of business. Ever.
