Goofs

At one point, Tree plots out a way to kill Tombs. She goes to the hospital, pulls a knife on the officer, takes his gun, tells him that Tombs is about to escape and to go get help. She then goes into his room where he escapes, they fight and she shoots and kills him. She's then seen celebrating her birthday. There is no way that she'd be free that night - she would at the very least be charged with the murder of Tombs since there's no witnesses to see that he did in fact free himself. From an outsiders point of view, she took an officers gun, untied Tombs, and then killed him. See more »

This movie knew exactly what it was
14 October 2017 | by stevencvgarciaSee all my reviews

I think people going to see this movie are expecting wayyyy to much from a slasher movie. I'm rating it based on what I expected, and I was certainly impressed. This movie wasn't trying to be anything more than another murder movie, but what made me want to see it was the idea of taking Groundhog Day (which it fully admitted to ripping the idea from) and turning it into a slasher film. I was actually surprised it held back on gore and blood. I was fully expecting it to be all the tropes of gross-out killings, but it was instead focused more on character development and the story. I admit the characters are a bit one-dimensional, but again, it's a slasher movie. It's trying to win any academy awards here. In many ways I think it's parodying those one-dimensional characters of college trope characters and the "last girl" in horror movies because it goes all-in on establishing the main characters as somebody you're meant to hate at first. The ending genuinely took me in a direction I didn't anticipate, and then it took me back to what I was expecting, but did it in a way that I felt fresh. All in all, I had fun watching this movie, which I think what this movie was meant to be: Fun.
