Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
A new trailer has been released for Happy Death Day. Similar to Harold Ramis' Groundhog Day (1993) and Tony Elliott's Arq (2016), a character is forced to relive a specific day over and over again, until an issue can be resolved. This time, Tree (Jessica Rothe) must find her killer, in order to escape this recurring nightmare. The film also stars Israel Broussard and Ruby Modine. Happy Death Day was directed by long time Blumhouse Productions' collaborator Christopher Landon and co-written by Scott Lobdell. The film's full length trailer is hosted here.

The promotional material shows Tree wakening over and over in her dorm room. Dorm rooms are co-ed now? She goes through a semi-normal day at college, until a masked killer strikes. Then, the day begins again as Tree starts to lose her sanity. She will have to discover the killer's identity, in hopes of escaping this narrative time loop.

Happy Death Day was formerly titled Half to Death. And, this horror title will release, in theatres, this October 2017. Of course, this date is Friday the 13th. And, this is the first time a Friday the 13th has fallen in October, in at least five years. The dark forces will align on this date as Happy Death Day is sure to draw film fans to theatres.
