‘Happy Death Day’ Trailer Repeats a Killer Birthday Celebration
Jessica Rothe is ready to live, die, repeat in Happy Death Day, the latest stab at youth-oriented horror from Blumhouse. Looking like a giddy combination of Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow, the Final Destination series and a few generic slasher movies tossed in for good measure, Happy Death Day follows a young woman named Tree (just go with it), played by Rothe, who keeps re-living the same day over and over again. As if that weren’t annoying enough to begin with, it also happens to be the day in which she’s murdered by a masked killer. The only apparent way to get out of the loop is to stop the murderer once and for all.
Directed by Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones helmer Christopher Landon, Happy Death Day also stars Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews and Charles Aitken. See if you can survive the Happy Death Day trailer, which features an erie remix of 50 Cent’s “In Da Club”, because sure, why not.
Blumhouse (Split, Get Out, Whiplash) produces an original and inventive rewinding thriller in HAPPY DEATH DAY, in which a college student (Jessica Rothe, La La Land) relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.
Happy Death Day opens October 13.
