Rated PG-13 · 100 minutes · 2019

Horror, Thriller
One of the only horror films I’d describe as cute, the 2017 Blumhouse hit Happy Death Day was a slight but engaging riff on Groundhog Day, following a college student doomed to relive the day of her murder until she figures out the identity of her masked killer. This superior sequel gives up on being a horror film early on and transforms into a wild sci-fi fantasy with imaginative twists involving parallel universes and characters with multiple identities. Director Christopher Landon (who also scripted this one) maintains the same charming tone he established in the first film—we’re not meant to take the story too seriously, even though we’re meant to view most of the characters with affection—and he accomplishes some nifty tracking shots as well. Like its predecessor, the movie has a broad sentimental streak, but the sentiment feels more thoughtful and heartfelt this time around.
