This film is a mystery/thriller film, directed by Christopher Landon and tells the story of Tree Gelbman who has to re-live the day she dies until she discovers the identity of her killer.
I actually really enjoyed this film, it’s amusing and it’s not scary whatsoever but it contains some stressful moments and a few humorous scenes so it did grab my attention, kept me at the edge of my seat and made me laugh. Now, let’s talk about the movie in more details.
The actions in the story are pretty predictable but I liked how the writer gave the story a twist by adding humor and, at some point, making the situation funny. However, the writer did it genuinely, the comedic scenes are not lame at all. Furthermore, the story is very well-developed, very well-constructed and like I previously said, some scenes are very stressful.
The main character is what I loved the most in this film; she is a total bitch but she is so fun to watch and her reactions to her situation is hilarious. Moreover, Jessica Rothe knew exactly how to portray her, I really liked her acting; her performance is believable and not self-conscious.
Concerning the cinematography/production design and the soundtrack, everything is pretty basic but the movie is well shot and the special effects are very realistic.
On another note, I really like the title of the film, it’s super smart [she dies the day of her birthday] and different, it gives you an idea about what type of movie you are watching: thriller/comedy.
To conclude, I think ‘Happy Death Day’ is worth watching, I really recommend you to. In fact, I really want to go watch it again because it’s super entertaining.
That’s it for this review. Don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ and to follow my blog, if you enjoyed reading it.
