    Review: ‘Happy Death Day 2U' goes back to the future

    9 days ago - By Los Angeles Times

    While the first “Happy Death Day” was a delightful surprise - full of heart and ingenuity, if lacking in gore - its sequel feels like nearly as much of a revelation. That shock isn't because of its horror movie elements like jump scares and multiple murders; it's because unlike its predecessor...

    ‘Happy Death Day 2U' Review: Jessica Rothe Delivers Another Killer Performance in this Pitch-Perfect Sequel

    9 days ago - By Slash Film

    Stop me if you've heard this one before. An unlucky person finds themselves living the same day, over and over again, in a continual loop. If they happen to die, they have to start the day all over again. And things are exactly the same...except when they aren't. Sounds pretty familiar, right? It should. It's the plot of Groundhog Day , but it's also the plot of several other notable titles: Edge of Tomorrow , the recent Netflix series Russian Doll , and of course, Happy Death Day , the clever slasher flick from 2017.
    Now here comes Happy Death Day 2U , a sequel that might not have seemed...

  • ‘Happy Death Day 2U' Film Review: Frightfully Clever Slasher Sequel is 2 Cool 2 B Forgotten

    9 days ago - By The Wrap

    How do you make a sequel out of a film which, by design, was already repetitive? “Happy Death Day” was the best original slasher film in recent memory, and following up its “Groundhog Day meets Graduation Day” premise with another simple time loop would have been easy, and probably even fun. But returning director Christopher Landon has more ambitious ideas in “Happy Death Day 2U,” transforming the original high-concept slasher into a ambitious and witty sci-fi treatise on alternate realities and the cinematic significance of personal growth in sequels, which frequently forces protagonists...

    Happy Death Day 2U Review: Back to the Future Time Loop

    9 days ago - By Screen Rant

    A sequel to Happy Death Day , Happy Death Day 2U marks the second installment in the Blumhouse-produced slasher comedy franchise. Having already released the horror-thrillers Split and Get Out to widespread critical acclaim and big box office returns earlier in the year, Blumhouse enjoyed another unexpected success with 2017's Happy Death Day - a movie often described as Groundhog Day meets Scream. The followup features plenty of callbacks to the first film, yet aspires to mix things up by exploring the sci-fi element that its predecessor only hinted at. Fortunately, this approach serves...

    After Warner Bros' The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part and Universal/Blumhouse/BVI's Glass fell far below their $50M+ opening projections, it's clear we are in the thick of a swampy market until Disney/Marvel's Captain...
