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

Excellent sequel with creative writing, but...
11 March 2019 | by TheTopDawgSee all my reviews

Excellent sequel with surprisingly creative writing mending nicely with the first film, but it just wasn't as entertaining or suspenseful as the first one. Felt a little longer that its 100 min run-time compared to the first film that was almost the same run-time but breezed through. Still impressive writing, directing, acting and entertaining. 8/10 from me.
