“Happy Death Day” (2017)

This combination Groundhog Day and a slasher film makes for a surprisingly fun and entertaining film. With its tongue firmly planted in its cheek, this film takes advantage of its creative premise, creating horror moments that could only be accomplished with this concept. The film also wisely chooses not to take itself seriously, so any inconsistencies or head scratching moments don’t hurt the overall experience. The result is that this film manages to illicit some genuine laughs. On top of that, you have Jessica Rothe’s likable and enjoyable performance in the lead role. Sure, this film might not be scary for a horror film, but for a horror comedy, this is a really fun time.
