Happy Death Day

(★★★✩✩)

COL­LEGE girl Teresa (Jes­sica Rothe) is killed by a masked mur­derer on her birth­day, only to wake up to re­live the same dread­ful day over and over again.

Hap­less Teresa has a chance to solve her mur­der, with the knowl­edge she gains from ev­ery day that she dies. But what hap­pens when our girl gets nowhere and keeps wak­ing up weaker and weaker ev­ery time as her in­jury leaves a mark on her body?

At the be­gin­ning, you do want Teresa to die be­cause she’s self-cen­tred and treats her friends like trash.

Then, as the movie pro­gresses, em­pha­sis­ing its mes­sage about sec­ond chances, you see a dif­fer­ent side to Teresa and start to root for her to beat the killer.

Happy Death Day has some bril­liant mo­ments of self-aware hu­mour and thrilling chase se­quences. Over­all, it’s a per­fect no-brainer movie. – An­gelin Yeoh
