Trivia

The scenes where Tree leaves Carter's dorm room and walks through the campus quad, with the same specific events happening each time (i.e. The couple getting soaked by the sprinklers, the car alarm going off, etc.) took two days to shoot. At one point, the sprinklers malfunctioned and couldn't be turned off, costing the crew at least an hour of filming until they were finally able to fix it. See more »

Goofs

In the second day, during the lunch meeting, Carter once again spills chocolate milk on Tree. The position and amount of chocolate milk spilled across her shirt changes position and amount between shots. See more »

Film contains many teen slasher tropes but transcends them with an inventive script & dark humour.
14 November 2017 | by PairicSee all my reviews

Happy Death Day: A student keeps reliving the same day which ends with her being murdered by a masked killer. At the first re-iteration of the day she is puzzled, the next time she is shocked but by the third raw panic sets in. The day rests anew each time as she wakes in the dorm room of she has crashed in. Eventually she enlists his help in an attempt to identify her murderer. Many red herrings are caught.

While this film contains many of the teen slasher tropes it transcends them with an inventive script and wonderful dark humour. 8/10.
