Happy Death Day 2U is Quite Repetitive (Literally and Figuratively)

I have very fond memories of my juvenile involvement in going to see the first Happy Death Day back during my terminal moments of High School. I won’t get too into the details of it all but let’s just say, alliances were formed, some (maybe) trivial illegal transactions materialized, and many parents were furious. But the aim here of what I’m trying to deduce was that I had a jolly-good time with the group I went with, therefore it only seemed right that the same group and I sought out to watch the sequel together. 

Oh yeah, and if you’re curious about what my thoughts are of the, OG Happy Death Day, all you ought to know is that I find it to be a fun, self-aware horror/comedy flick. 

Happy Death Day 2U is a movie that exists because—in plain sailing terms—it can. Blumhouse banked hard from the startlingly pleasant predecessor and as prophesied by the great, mighty ones (basic common sense) we were educated that the studio would eventually (meaning 100% immediately) fetch into a jolt for some more moola. So here we are, a year and a half afterward. Hollywood has dumped once more, another traditional sequel upon our heads and I inevitably, sucked it all in. And there’s absolutely nothing admirable about it. Go figure. 

There’s not a whole lot this movie has going for it. Kill montage, after kill montage, after kill montage and the movie starts becoming its own plot’s greatest fear. That fear being that we’ve all seen it before and that we’re all getting sick and tired of seeing it happen over, and over, and over again. This film continuously depends upon its quirky, satirical, ironical shimmer that to a certain extent, no longer becomes that but, becomes this contagious twitch that nukes your once begging attention. 

Happy Death Day Too is a thoughtless cash-grab that is—I guess—serviceably constructed but, frightfully weak and banal. Thank the heavens though that we at least have Jessica Rothe to save this from being a total pyramid of nullity. (Verdict: *]#\+=&@—

Verdict: D+

My friend predicted practically every twist and turn that transpired in this movie and she doesn’t even watch a whole lot of movies so, that’s just embarrassing on the screenwriter’s part. Tsk tsk.

“Happy Death Day 2U” is now playing in theaters.
