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

In a scene when the team is plotting and looking over floorplans toward the end, (to steal a reactor let's just say), in the upper right corner something small, grey, fluffy like feathers or a wind-screen appears for a second. See more »
Quick Review. Thought the first Happy Death Day was decent (7/10) but this sequel was surprisingly really good and better than I expected. It expanded on the universe and the characters from the first one, while introducing a few new ones. I'm a big horror movie fan but I was okay with it losing some of the horror elements as it makes the most sense for the continuation of the story. The characters already know the drill, it's not really a "scary" situation for them anymore, nor should the filmmakers try to force it for the audience. I don't think it would have worked if they went that route.
So the new sci-fi/time travel direction that this film takes, with a good dose of humor and heartfelt moments, surprisingly worked for me and maybe it's because I didn't see it coming. It's not perfect, I would give it an 8.5/10 if I could. The ending was a bit much but overall it was a really fun and enjoyable movie, better than the first in my opinion. I'd highly recommend checking it out, especially if you're a fan of the first. (Unless you are looking for a more serious slasher film, in that case, I think you'll be disappointed.)
Curious to see what Happy Death Day 3 will be like and if it will have yet another new tone different from the first two movies.
