Preview Review: Happy Death Day - In Theaters 10/13/17

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the title "Happy Death Day" was the song Dethklok wrote for Murderface on his birthday. But other than that... it looks stupid. A college student relives the day of her murder over and over again until she discovers the identity of her killer. Hasn't this scenario been played out dozens of times already to know that it hasn't really worked since Groundhogs Day? That what this reminds me of, like Groundhogs Day meets Camp Daze, and then MTV bought the rights to both films just so they could make a horribly trendy PG-13 horror film with a fuckin' bumpin' soundtrack that all of the kiddies will enjoy. I didn't have much hope in the film to begin with. These big budget PG-13 films are a complete disaster (most of the time, not all of the time. Insidious for example is a great PG-13 horror film) and considering the director of the film, Christopher Landon, who also wrote and directed such films as Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, and Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, I think this is going to be one huge stinker. I'll give him one point though, cause he did write Disturbia and I definitely enjoyed that when it came out.

Obviously these are opinion based and if you think this is going to a good film, then great, that's awesome. If this movie comes out and it's a hell of a lot better than I thought it was going to be, great, good for the people who worked on it. I got a couple more of these 'Preview Reviews' coming up in the future, so keep a look out. What are your thoughts? Let me know!
