Critic Reviews of "Happy Death Day"
Time OutOctober 19, 2017
Director Christopher Landon and screenwriter and comics veteran Scott Lobdell maintain modest tension and humor as they deliver tried-and-true genre standbys like loud music jump-scares, an unnaturally deserted hospital and red-herring suspects.
BuzzFeed NewsOctober 19, 2017
But the film doesn't just find a clever way to refresh a maybe-calcified genre. It also overturns some of the genre's more puritanical tendencies.
ReelViewsOctober 14, 2017
Happy Death Day is about 90 minutes long and, past the first half-hour, every minute is dumber than the one before it.
Globe and MailOctober 13, 2017
There's a spunky charm to the Scream-meets-Groundhog Day thing, and the film is well-built. The problem is its chipper message.
New York Magazine/VultureOctober 12, 2017
The movie is no big deal, but its Groundhog Day conceit is kind of irresistible, and the genre blend seems right for this age of women seeking stability and empowerment.
Toronto StarOctober 12, 2017
What makes Death Day feel so fresh is that this is all played with a whopper of a wink, pulled off by the considerable comedic talents of star Jessica Rothe, who successfully juggles the horror/comedy mash-up.

Sometimes you just like a movie even though it kind of sucks.
Observer (UK)October 22, 2017
One of the most breezily enjoyable teen movies of recent years.
EricDSnider.comOctober 20, 2017
If we're doomed to watch the same movies over and over (and we evidently are), at least this one makes an effort.
The ListOctober 20, 2017
A slasher comedy that allows its leading lady to flip the bird at the usual clichés, instead of simply and sadistically punishing her.
PajibaOctober 20, 2017
Happy Death Day is stupid, but not in the fun way.
Independent Online (South Africa)October 20, 2017
The film's ability to not take itself too seriously is probably what makes it most enjoyable.
