Happy Death Day: Film Review – The Perfect Mix of Horror and Comedy

Halloween is coming! The production Company that famous for horror films – Blumhouse Production released Happy Death Day this year. This film is directed by Christopher B. Landon (best known for the later Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse) and written by Scott Lobdell. Happy Death Day is a slasher comedy mystery genre film and starring Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard.

This film starts when Tree (Jessica Rothe) wakes up on her birthday in the bed of a student named Carter (Israel Broussard). When a masked killer suddenly takes her life in a brutal attack, she once again magically wakes up in Carter’s dorm room. Now, the frightened young woman must relieve the same day over and over until she figures out who murdered her.

Tree is the beautiful and arrogant sorority girl. This time loop makes her panic and stressed out. The only way that she can exit the time loop is to find out who is the murderer that wears a hoodie and the baby mask. Is that one of her friends from the sorority? Her boyfriend? Or her lecturer?

Happy Death Day Film Review - BookMyShow

Maybe you’re familiar with time looping films and that's where the film draws from. Yes, Happy Death Day is inspired by the famous comedy film starring Bill Murray – Groundhog Day. Christopher B. Landon as director succeeded in making this an entertaining film. He takes us over and over the same events to find out who murdered Tree with slasher scene. This film is not only intense but also funny.

Jessica Roth who played as Mia’s friend in La La Land now appears cruel, witty, fragile and tough as Tree. Israel Broussard, playing Tree's boyfriend, also adds some romance to Happy Death Day. Roth and Broussard’s chemistry feels just right without any effort. Israel is a famous actor who has been in a film with Emma Watson called Bling Ring.

This 96-minute movie also stars Ruby Modine, Charles Aitken, Laura Clifton, Rob Mello, and Rachel Matthews. Matthews stole the attention with her ridiculous and cruel character as chairman of the Kappa Fraternity. This movie is what you'd expect to see when Mean Girls meets Scream meets Groundhog Day. Happy Death Day serves horror and humor over and over again with a solid cast. They are ready to haunt you this Halloween. 

Happy Death Day released in theatres in Indonesia on October 18, 2017.

5 Scenes From Akshay Kumar’s ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ That Have Their Own Fandom

When Priyadarshan’s horror-comedy ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ released in 2007, it delighted both critics and the public. A remake of the 1993 Malayalam movie ‘Manichitrathazu’, the Hindi film features Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan and Shiney Ahuja. A solid storyline backed by crackling performances (especially Kumar and Balan), foot-tapping music, peak comedy interspersed with supernatural thrills, a surprising psychological twist, and a legendary spectral entity in the form of Manjulika made it an absolute must-watch.
