Jessica Rothe plays Tree Gelbman, who believes that the world is suppose to wait on her. After a wild night of partying, she wakes up in the dorm room of her classmate, Carter, who is played by Israel Broussard. It's her birthday. As Tree is headed to a party that night, she is murdered by someone wearing the mask of her school's mascot.
Somehow she wakes up the next day again in Carter's dorm room. As she leaves, she realizes that everything is the same as the day before. She decides to stay at her sorority house to avoid a repeat of her murder, but is still killed by the masked attacker. When the same thing happens the next day, she decides to stay in her room. Still the masked intruder is able to kill her. Tree realizes that the day is just repeating in a time loop. She tells Carter her story and he convinces her to use the day to discover the identity of her killer.
Happy Death Day is a solid movie. It was well written, well directed, and well acted. It's similar to some movies, but it has a twist. Jessica Rothe was outstanding as were the other actors. Check you mind at the door and I think you'll enjoy this movie as I did.
I gave this movie 3 out of 4 stars. It's a fun horror movie.
