I found this movie weird and I like bad horror sometimes, this is one movie that is it. Its sort of like groundhog day but with killing it in so that is ok. Also I like the element of surprise of guessing sort of like scream movie which to me was bad horror movie. Most horror movies now is awful to watch only a few movies are good but not lately but everyone's taste runs different totally. If you are really bored then this would be the movie for you no it is not good but sometimes it so bad its good.
Directed by Christopher Landon in 2017, this American serious-looking-at-first-then-goes-nonsense-&-foolish drama repeats a series of recurring murders.
If you'd like to waste your time, this is for you.
I quit halfway through simply because I didn't want to waste any more time.
A fun ride of a Scream Queen style film. More funny than scary, but still really enjoyable.
This movie was enjoyable. It is a blending of Groundhog Day, Mean Girls & Scream Queens. It has sine crude language, nudity & scary moments. That is why I would not show it to anyone under the age of 17.
This movie was horrible. It's so predictable, and a real disappointment from Blumhouse. I'm both surprised and upset that they are making a sequel.
Update: I just saw the sequel and I was pleasantly surprised, as I liked it a lot better than the first one.
Take Groundhog Day, replace Bill Murray with Jessica Rothe's cranky self-centered ingenue, and murder her in new and ever more interesting ways...and you have Happy Death Day. While this tends toward more serious slasher than my usual fare, there are some very entertaining scenes. Like the walk across the college quad during the montage, when the protagonist decides she can do absolutely anything she wants, if her day resets at the end. The identity of the killer is somewhat predictable, but the protagonists journey is not. I was surprised how much I liked this movie.
This slasher film is about a woman who continues to wake up the same day in the same place not too sure what happened. It is not until she gets brutally murdered that she realizes what’s going on. Until she is able to identify her killer, she will be forced to relive the same day that she got murdered again and again. This movie is scary in the sense that no one likes to think about what happens when they die, especially if it means re-living some kind of terrible event. The movie wasn’t as scary as I was hoping and had some accidentally funny scenes, but I would still rate it 3.5/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
"Overall, I quite enjoyed Happy Death Day. I thought it was a fun, funny, thrilling movie with a great lead. Jessica Rothe was great to watch, she was energetic, charismatic and funny. I think the movie is surprisingly funny, I wasn’t really expecting to laugh the way I did. I don’t think the movie is a comedy by any means, but it does have a lot of humorous elements, like, I mean the killer wears a baby face mask, that’s funny (and creepy) and one of her deaths is with a bong hahaha..."

I was surprise that I like this movie so much. This was a very good movie I really enjoyed it.
Cute little film. A variation on Run, Lola, Run, Sliding Doors and Groundhog Day. Regarding the reviewer below who referred to a racist song ... they must be thinking of another movie. There're no racist songs at the end of this film.
Bad, very bad, acting, set, everything bad! and it ends with a racist song. Avoid and be happy you never wasted your time
This is actually a very good movie. I thought it would be stupid but was completely fooled had great ending.
A good take on the groundhog day theme with horror elements. Was wrong when trying to guess who the villain was in the end. Stick through the first 10mins or so, it does get better. One review gave up after 7mins, stick through I say, it gets more enjoyable and even some laughs. The bonus content is good, alternate ending not great but most aren't. Not sure if the blu-ray has any added features, I saw the DVD version.
Worth a watch.
I don't usually watch this type of movie anymore (horror) but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The plot was a little more original than others by subtly combining all that you like from a horror movie plus humor... and it couldn't have been done without the talent of lead actress Jessica Rothe. I have no idea who this actress is but I hope to see her in upcoming movies because she's got potential.
Much better than you might think. A Groundhog Day movie premise as others have said, the leading actress does a really good job. Great Friday night movie - we enjoyed it as a party movie.
I'm really glad I watched this. I hate horror/slasher movies, but I knew this one had a Groundhog Day time-loop premise which intrigued me. The movie ends up being a murder mystery as the would-be victim tries to solve her own murder. I found this movie often very funny and highly entertaining. I thought the lead actress was excellent. The main character is not very likeable at the beginning, but being murdered causes her to re-examine her life and she goes through a lot of changes and evolves throughout the film. I thought the horror-comedy blend worked very well.
I think Jessica Rothenberg (Tree Gelbman) did a great job with the material she was given. It’s been so long since I’ve seen ‘Groundhog Day” that I’ll have to re-watch it to see the similarities. The idea is not original, but it was fun to watch!
interesting plot and the story is never boring! Also I don't like horror movies, but this isn't gory.... more of a thriller! The ending wasn't too obvious either so it made it all the more fun. I recommend!
Slasher horror-comedy is basically my favourite genre but it’s so easy for those movies to be terrible. This one is like Unfriended where no one believes me that it’s good. I liked the decision to make the main girl unlikable, which is unusual for a scream queen (barring the show Scream Queens, of course) but works to make the whole blond-girl-chased-by-serial-killer thing feel fresh. Half a star off because the ending was dumb, but otherwise loved it.
I saw" groundhog day" and would highly recommend it in place of this video..Unless you enjoy the words "dick- head" , "barfing" and a hanful of spiny self centered teenagers. I watched the 7 minutes and turned it off. The star is for the talent of the thespians.
Fun horror film with the groundhog day plot device. Very much a 'who done it' style horror. Lots of laughs were had. Unfortunately, I found the main character really hard to like and the ending rather unsatisfying.
Groundhog Day with a Horror flair; should have been a lot more interesting. The problem is the lead was a horrible person. Knowing the day would reset meant there was no real danger (ie she wasn't going to stay dead). And why is it always blondes depicted in such a negative way. I guess horrifically negative blonde stereotypes are the only one you can do in Hollywood.
