Storyline

Having survived the farcical but utterly life-threatening events in Happy Death Day (2017), the feisty sorority sister, Tree Gelbman, finds herself in the same college dorm, thankful to be alive. However, this time, it's Carter's roommate, Ryan, who claims that he is reliving the same paradoxical day over and over again, as a mysterious paranoid killer in a single-toothed baby-faced mask with a big kitchen knife has made a habit of murdering him. Under those circumstances, a valiant but vain attempt to face the challenge, once more, will send Tree back to square one, trapped in an all too familiar and blood-drenched time loop. How many deaths separate Tree from a truly happy birthday? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

Tree's freefall montage of various suicides, landing her back into Carter and Ryan's dorm room, pays visual reference to the music video of the song that plays over the montage: Paramore's Hard Times where in the music video lead vocalist Hayley Williams, sporting similar attire to Tree Gelbman and blonde hair collapses slowly back into a bed from the roof.

Goofs

MRI machines do not turn on/off like that. First of all, MRI's are always on, even at night. There is an OFF button, but only for severe emergencies, because once the MRI is turned off - it takes weeks and thousands of dollars to turn it back on. Therefore, as soon as Tree and Gregory enter the room, her screwdriver and his gun would be pulled to the machine. The wheelchair would already be stuck to the machine (there was no reason to put one in an MRI room). See more »

Quotes

[Tree and Carter return to the lounge with Dean Bronson's keys. Bronson finally unwraps the tapestry off Danielle and helps her stand]
Danielle Bouseman: [forgetting she pretends to be French] Gracias.
Dean Roger Bronson: Okay. Shall we?
Danielle Bouseman: Okay.
[Bronson walks toward the door, then stops]
Dean Roger Bronson: Ah, forgot my keys.

Not as good
25 April 2019 | by Dave_05See all my reviews

Unfortunately this movie is not as good as the first one. I really enjoyed the first one but this one is nowhere near as entertaining. I am shocked how its rating is almost the same as the first movie.
