Personally, I am not a huge fan of guts, gore, and horror. I typically don’t enjoy horror films and scary stories but I love Halloween. This Friday the 13th, I went with a group of friends to a showing of Happy Death Day. The movie was surprisingly good. I laughed pretty hard and even the “scary” parts were entertaining.
Happy Death Day, directed by Christopher B. Landon, is a PG-13 horror film that came out on Friday the 13th. The movie is about a college student named Tree Gelbman that is self-centered and somewhat mean. She wakes up on her birthday and spends the day in her usual state, yelling at people and bringing others down. At the end of the night, she runs into a masked killer who chases and eventually kills her. She magically wakes up again and is back in bed, starting her birthday over. She is forced to relive this day until she figures out who her murderer is.
The movie is a mixture of comedy, horror, and mystery. The main characters are really funny and make you laugh in the times when the murderer isn’t murdering. The main character has many funny lines throughout the movie that caused applause and yelling in the theatre. The killer has lots of different ways that he kills Tree throughout the movie but none show blood or anything too gory. That is what makes it a PG-13. While Tree is trying to figure out her murderer, the movie turns into a mystery. She makes plans and spends days trying to figure out who could be behind the mask.
The movie was overall pretty good, probably boring for those who love guts and gore, but for people like me or people who just like anything thriller, I enjoyed the movie and would recommend it.
