Happy death Day, directed by Christopher B. Landan, is a movie about a college girl who celebreates and is killed on her birthday. However she doesn’t remain dead, she wakes up thinking it was a dream until the morning was just like the same in her “dream”. Knowing that she will be killed, she tried to protect herself but failed. And then she wakes up again, this time knowing that it’s not a dream and realizes that this will keep going on until she catches her killer.
Although I don’t like horror films because I’m too scare to watch. Somehow this movie doesn’t seem scary at all, it looks more like an action film rather than a horror film. It’s just that there are a lot of jumpscares which I’m fine with. Other than that, there’s an intresting ability that the main character has, a chance to do a do-over of her birthday. Most movies would have a plot of having the killed person avanged by someone else or the main character learns to protect herself, but this was different
“Becoming a decent person requires an awful lot of dying in “Happy Death Day,” a snappy horror-comedy with a gentle romantic spine.” – Jeanette Catsoulis from New York Times
