Happy Death Day (2017)

From beginning to end, this surprising, clever, and funny little horror movie channels the tone and mood of long-running young adult horror book series like “Point Horror” and “Fear Street” that introduced an entire generation to horror. It’s a gleefully inventive entry that could easily be described as a horror take on Ivan Reitman’s beloved 1993 comedy “Groundhog Day,” but that would do it a disservice: The film is filled with fun twists and genuine surprises, and it keeps the audience on its toes consistently from beginning to end on its own, often gory, terms. It’s bound to find an audience over the years, there’s no way this won’t find cult infamy if not mainstream success.
