“Happy Death Day” has drama, jump scares and a few plot twists along the way.

The thriller film is written by Scott Lobdell (“Mosaic”) and directed by Christopher Landon (“Get Out”).

It stars Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard as two of the main characters. Tree Gelbman (Rothe) wakes up to the chime of bell in Carter Davis’ (Broussard) room. She goes throughout the day as if it’s any other day until her roommate surprises her for her birthday.

In the evening she is invited to a party at a fraternity house across the college campus she lives on. On the way to the party, Tree is killed by a stranger in a baby mask which happens to be the school mascot.

When Tree wakes up back in the bed, she gets a sense of deja vu throughout the day only to be murdered again that night. She realizes what’s happening and does what she can to try and make her time warped day come to an end.

The movie takes a thrilling twist at the end of the movie when Tree finds out who the killer is.

The 96 minute thriller is rated PG-13 due to its violence and foul content.

“Happy Death Day” was produced by Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions. The movie was budgeted for $4.8 million and has grossed for over $30 million in 10 days.

Originally in 2007 when the movie was first announced Megan Fox was supposed to play the main role and Michael Bay was to produce it.
