Happy Death Day Trailer: A Groundhog Day-Inspired Slasher Flick


Groundhog Day may not have been the first movie to feature a time loop but it is certainly the most famous, to the point where any new movie featuring a similar plot conceit is instantly called a Groundhog Day rip-off. In the case of Blumhouse’s upcoming horror film Happy Death Day, it takes the idea of reliving the same day over and over again but puts it in the form of a slasher movie where the main character must try to figure out who her killer is. It seems like an interesting twist on the concept, even if many of the individual beats seem pretty familiar. At the very least, it appears to have a sense of humour about it as well. Happy Death Day is directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) and it hits theatres on Oct. 13th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
