‘Happy Death Day’ charms as much as it scares (InterAksyon)

I knew I wanted to see Happy Death Day when I saw the trailer. It’s Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow in the horror-comedy genre. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, which elevates the film in a way that makes it endearing. There are no ambitions and it just does what it does well and succeeds.

Read my review here: ‘Happy Death Day’ charms as much as it scares (InterAksyon).

Jessica Rothe is so endearing in Happy Death Day

I’m so surprised at how effective Jessica Rothe is and how charming she is. She makes you hate Tree at the start of the film, a cold-hearted bitch, and then reels you in and makes you care as the film progresses. I didn’t get to say it in my review but Isreal Broussard is also so bloody charming. I remember him from Bling Ring and he was marvelous there as well.

I can’t wait to see what else these two will come up with in the future.
