Happy Death Day 2U is a 2019 Horror/Mystery/Thriller film starring Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Suraj Sharma, Steve Zissis, Rachel Matthews, Charles Aitken, Sarah Yarkin, Caleb Spillyards, GiGi Erneta, Laura Clifton, Wendy Miklovic, Kaleb Naquin, Kenneth Israel, Tenea Intriago, Blaine Kern III. It is directed by Christopher Landon, who directed the first Happy Death Day film. A synopsis for this film via IMDb reads:”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?”
I would like to start off by saying that this film is different from the first part, thing that can make you ask yourself if it’s better than the first film or worse. How is it different I hear you ask. Well, it’s less scary and more scientific. I won’t reveal how exactly it is scientific, I’ll let you discover that for yourself. This combo works well in my opinion. I believe this film is going to be a massive success at the box office as the action of the sequel is build on the basis of the first film.I highly recommend watching the first one as closely as you can to this one as Happy Death Day 2U picks up right where it left off. There is the usual gang in this film, along with some new characters.
What I loved about this film is the fact that although there are few scary scenes, they are excellently built and are full of suspense. I definitely believe this movie will give you all the feels. There is a good chemistry between Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard and the funny moments can sometimes seem exaggerated, but they are there to make you laugh and not to be judged too hard. This movie takes you on such a wild ride that you will want to ride again and again! I can’t wait for this film to come out on DVD and BluRay so I can watch it on numerous occasions. Also stay for the post credit scene you won’t regret it!
On the whole, this is a great addition to the Happy Death Day franchise, and I even heard some rumours that a third film is in the making. I already thought of a title suggestion for it: Happy Death Day Tree. I hope you got the gist of the joke I just tried to make. Anyway, this film deserves an 8.5 out of 10 rating and I think it is one film not to be missed.
