Happy Death Day

What a great surprise.

Coming from nowhere, this inventive horror comedy riff on Groundhog Day scored big, reportedly earning $125 million on a $4.8 million budget.

You love to see it.

Sorority girl Tree, madly scrambling to ID her killer, keeps bouncing back from one bloody finale after another, reborn each time with a scream, and rapidly-increasing body damage.

Starting off spoiled and catty, she rediscovers the tough, smart young woman she always was, but has chosen to bury in her grief over her mother’s death.

A splendid mystery, wickedly funny, and anchored by an emotional, and unexpected, reunion.

Quite the present.
