Happy Death Day 2U, is the second film to Happy Death Day (2017), with the return of Jessica Rothe, who plays a character called Tree Gelbman, where she finds herself back in the same college accommodation room, thankful to be alive. However, this time, it’s Carter’s roommate, Ryan, who is now reliving the same paradox day over and over again, as a mysterious and paranoid killer wearing a single-toothed baby-faced mask and holding a big kitchen knife has made a habit of murdering him.
In order to fix this, and stop reliving the same day over and over again, Tree works with some scientists at the college, including Ryan, to try and break the continuous loop, closing other alternative universe’s, and to live life normal again.
From watching the first film, when it was released in 2017, I was looking forward to seeing this film, but I did feel a little disappointed after watching this. Admitedly I did laugh at a few scenes, which were funny, but I had to really focus my attention on keeping indulged in the film to the end, and it was a struggle at times. I do not feel this film lives up to the hype from watching the first movie.
As I do with all my reviews, please do not rely solely on my review, as this is just how I felt. If you are indecisive about watching Death Day 2U, I would recommend to give it a watch, as you may enjoy it, as it is more comedy than horror, but it is down to individual taste.

Happy Death Day 2U is also now available to stream now on Netflix (UK).
I give this film a 4 star rating!
