Jessica Rothe takes center stage as college student Tree Gelbman who wakes up in a young man’s dorm room. With a night
of drinking behind her, Tree does the walk of shame back to her sorority house, traverses a significantly eventful day and stumbles into her surprise party that night where a masked killer assaults and brutally murders her.
What should have been the cap to a less than remarkable life ends with Gelbman waking up in the men’s bedroom, where she began her morning, still drunk from a night of partying and waiting to traverse another twenty-four hours that will culminate in her death. Caught in a deadly loop, Tree must experience her murder over and over again until she finds her killer and escapes the nightmare.
There are a lot of jokes and fun along with the scary scenes, so when you do finally watch Happy Death Day online free, do not be surprised to catch yourself giggling at a line or two.
Another Great Movie From The Same Crew
Blumhouse is winning. There are no two ways about it. The Production Company just refuses to stumble, and this after delivering surprising hits like Get Out and Split. This could be the beginning of a new era in Hollywood.
The studio is showing that it is more than possible to spend tiny budget and still multiply your investment, not only in the immediate future but also in the long run. And they seem to have that particular model down to an art. They know how to find talented but largely underappreciated directors and then pair them with killer scripts to produce massive critical and blockbuster hits.
Now they get to add another great title to their hit list. Know that you will watch Happy Death Day at some point in the coming months, not only for the quality of the movie but because of its considerable success. Good or bad, that is how trends are made. Movies that make money, especially so early in their run, tend to attract even more viewers. People cannot help but wonder what all the fuss is about.
What You Should Know?
If you keep abreast of news and reviews, then you have heard words like Groundhog Day mentioned in association with Happy Death Day and there’s a good reason for that. It have somehow similar Storyline but with lots of death.
The movie takes the best parts of Bill Murray’s comedy classic and buries them under the mayhem of a horror story. And the film has been credited for acknowledging what it is and having fun with what should be a ludicrous premise. Jessica Rothe is endlessly funny as Tree, paired perfectly with Israel Broussard’s bland love interest.
The plot follows a relatively predictable path. Before her initial death, Tree encounters a series of seemingly random occurrences and persons that highlight the various aspects of her life and personality. She has to repeatedly contend with these same encounters because of her nightmare of a loop, making alterations to her actions and watching the changes that manifest as a result.
The mean girl on Campus, Tree’s dilemma lies in the fact that she has made more enemies than she knows what to do with. As such, narrowing her potential killers down to a manageable list becomes a challenge. Fortunately for Gelbman, her grim journey through her final day gives her plenty of time to reflect on her actions and to make certain improvements.
The full movie has been criticized for perpetuating the negative image of young women on a campus. When our heroine and her friends are not drinking, they are sleeping with every man that catches their eye, fighting with their sorority sisters and belittling every less than perfect male or female specimen that crosses their path.
The clichéd college stereotypes abound. But for the proponents, Happy Death Day revels in what should be a parody of life in college. The main character is an exaggeration of every mean sorority girl you see in horror films. And it is because of her stereotypical design that the character has the capacity to experience something akin to an arc.
Happy Death Day hurt Blade Runner 2049’s box office, not because of its substance but because it has fun. And that is all young viewers care about. They want to enter the cinema, or watch online the full movie and leave having had the time of their lives.
