The trailer for Happy Death Day has arrived. Blumhouse Produtions has been making horror movies – often successful ones,for eight years. In that time, several of their films have done well enough to warrant not only sequels, but entire series. Some of those series include Paranormal Activity, The Purge, and Insidious. So far, 2017 has been quite a good year for the production company, with Split and Get Out both receiving critical acclaim. While not every movie made by Blumhouse is a horror film, that is definitely the genre of choice at the production company.
Next up from Blumhouse is Happy Death Day, a slasher film about a sorority girl named Tree who is having the worst birthday ever. At the end of the day, she is murdered – only to wake up at the start of her birthday once again. In order to break the loop, she not only has to avoid dying – she needs to figure out just who is trying to kill her and why. A teaser trailer was released the other on Monday, showing Tree’s day and a killer wearing a pretty terrifying baby mask.
Blumhouse has now released the first full-length trailer for Happy Death Day – a film directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) from a script that Landon cowrote with Scott Lobdell (Man of the House) – online. You can check it out in the space above.
For those curious, here is the official synopsis for Happy Death Day:
Blumhouse (Split, Get Out, Whiplash) produces an original and inventive rewinding thriller in HAPPY DEATH DAY, in which a college student (Jessica Rothe, La La Land) relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.
Many of the horror movies made by Blumhouse have an element of the supernatural. Happy Death Day is no exception, with Tree’s many chances to live the day over and hopefully survive providing the fantasy. Traditionally most slasher films are largely realistic, at least until the sequel calls for a dead murderer to be resurrected. But there are exceptions to that rule and it seems as though Happy Death Day is going to be one. As to whether the killer also has supernatural powers… we’ll just have to wait and see.
