Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one suspect: John Kramer, the man known as Jigsaw, who has been dead for over 10 years.

A teenage girl, trying to enjoy her birthday, soon realizes that this is her final one. That is, if she can figure out who her killer is. She must relive that day, over and over again, dying in a different way each time. Can she solve her own murder?
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 »
When Tree is at the hospital and Dr. Butler is giving her a physical checkup, he tells her that her injuries that were accumulated from her numerous deaths prior mean that she should already be dead. Tree deduces that this mean that the time loop won't be infinite and that she will eventually permanently die. This is a plot point that although is relevant in the alternate ending, where Dr. Butler's wife pretends to give Tree medicine for said injuries before killing her, it is never addressed again and forgotten in the theatrical cut, a result of bad editing.

Happy Death Day 7/10 This is the first day of the rest of your life ....
I had low expectations and I have to say they were totally exceeded .
This is an enjoyable Romantic Horror with more than a passing reference to GROUNDHOG DAY - and the occasional reminiscing of the 15 year old Shaun of the dead . Plus a bit of Scream , scary movie and a number of other slasher movies .
Jessica Roshe was brilliant in the starring role , you believe in her character , her charm was endearing and despite the 10 years between her character and actual age she played the combination of innocent romantic with a touch a modern feisty independent female in control of her own destiny .
The only poor point was how the inevitable twist was handled - that could have been slightly better but definitely worth seeing .
