On paper, the idea of combining the comedy classic Groundhog Day with the slasher genre may sound like a horrifically terrible idea. But last year’s Happy Death Day — which did just that — was both a killer watch and substantial box office hit.
The folks at Blumhouse fast-tracked a sequel, titled Happy Death Day 2U, which sees the return of the original’s leading lady, Jessica Grothe, whose character Tree Gelbman discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.
Happy Death Day 2U is written and directed by Christopher Landon and produced by Jason Blum. The film is released Feb. 14, 2019.
