HAPPY DEATH DAY
2017, Universal, 96 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Landon
SCREAM meets GROUNDHOG DAY in this darkly comedic slasher hit from Blumhouse Productions. University student Theresa “Tree” Gelbman (Jessica Rothe, in a breakout performance) caps off her birthday by getting murdered – only to wake up and re-experience the day’s events. As the process repeats itself, Tree gathers clues to stop her killer and escape the endless loop. “A snappy horror-comedy with a gentle romantic spine.” – Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times.
HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U
2019, Universal, 100 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Landon
Jessica Rothe leads the returning cast of HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U, the follow-up to Blumhouse’s (SPLIT, GET OUT, THE PURGE series) surprise 2017 smash hit of riveting, repeating twists and comic turns. This time, our hero Tree Gelbman (Rothe) discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.
