Slasher Groundhog Day
11 March 2020 | by cardsrockSee all my reviews

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.
