The original script written by Scott Lobdell included material intending to make the film R-rated. Some scenes involved grislier death depictions that were entirely altered by the film's director Christopher Landon. See more »

Slasher Groundhog Day
Happy Death Day is fully aware of the kind of movie it is and has no qualms about poking fun at itself. It's this type of self-awareness and humor that makes the film enjoyable to watch. The film is somewhat original in putting a slasher spin on the great premise of Groundhog Day (although it is awfully similar to a classic episode of Supernatural...) and features an entertaining lead performance by Jessica Rothe.
