It’s nothing we haven’t seen before, from Groundhog Day to recent teen drama Before I Fall, a character wakes up to the same day repeated, every day, trying to convince everyone around them they’re in a time loop.
But what if you woke up to the same day, straight after your murder?
That’s the question surrounding Happy Death Day, a new thriller slasher flick where a college student relives her murder – in every way possible – until she finds out who her killer is.
You can view the trailer here:
Produced by Blumhouse, the minds behind recent horror successes Split and Get Out, it seems this thriller is a new, intense take on a classic narrative.
Happy Death Day will be in Australian cinemas later this year and is distributed by Universal Pictures.
