Happy Death Day

Death Day is what happens when groundhog day has a threesome with Scary Movie and a random NY Romantic comedy.

“In an attempt to elevate a familiar structure, eager new comedy horror Happy Death Day takes the classic slasher formula and adds a nifty twist. Theresa, known as Tree (Jessica Rothe), is waking up in a bad place: a dorm room, to be exact. She’s not quite sure how she got there, but a hangover and someone called Carter (Israel Broussard) are all the clues she needs. Even worse, it’s her birthday, an occasion she loathes, and the ensuing 24 hours provide her with social embarrassment, romantic entanglements, sorority sister drama and, well, her death. But then Tree wakes up, stuck in the same day, unable to break the cycle until she finds out who wants her dead.”

Flatliners

This is a remake of the 1990’s movie about medicine students that stop their hearts for seconds to experience death. And while there is a great cast, especially Diego Luna and second to him Ellen Page, the consensus is that they don’t really sell the emotional dimension of the film, making the movie less credible, making the only improvement on the 90’s movie, the general FX.

Still, the trailer is really cool and since I did not see the 1990’s I really want to see this one. Check this trailer.
