Universal Pictures just released a trailer for their upcoming horror film Happy Death Day, and I have to say I’m into it.
A college student (Jessica Rothe, La La Land) relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.
Yes this has a very familiar premise. Happy Death Day is Peggy Sue Got Married, Back to the Future and Groundhog Day coupled with a murder. Fun. Just from watching the trailer this looks to be well done. Also, I think it will be fun to see how the protagonist attempts to thwart her death – repeatedly.
Happy Death Day is directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) and written by Scott Lobdell and Landon. It stars: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Charles Aitken, Laura Clifton
Happy Death Day opens October 13th.
