    Did we not have a discussion thread for Happy Death Day? I couldn't find one. Madness!

    Anyway, there will be test screenings in Burbank on Wednesday for the sequel, titled Happy Death Day 2U. So the movie is done.

    I would expect a trailer attached to Halloween.

    I had no idea this was a thing. I really enjoyed the original. Hope this lives up to it.

    I thought there was already an existing thread on here also. I had heard about the sequel months ago somewhere online at least...and thought it was here.

    I also really enjoyed the first film, and the sequel should turn out to be interesting.

    I thought I posted about wanting to see the movie as well in a topic here. I can't find it though. But the movie is on demand and I'm going to watch the original soon for the October month if not earlier.

    I watched the original. It was pretty good. I'll post a short review in the October viewing topic when it goes up. I started my Halloween horror movie watching a bit early.

    I'm surprised this sequel happened so quick without much talk or buzz around it either. I loved Happy Death Day and hope this sequel is just as good. Not sure what direction they'll take with a sequel to a Goundhog Day type movie though.

    New trailer:




    ...and since the first trailer was never posted here (I imagine most of us saw it before Halloween), here's that too:

    First trailer is extremely spoiler-filled in case you haven't seen the movie.

    This might be the most optimistic chat board on the internet lol. I couldn't stand the first one. My quick review: http://splattercritic.com/2017/10/happy-death-day/

    A college student dies over and again on her birthday while trying to figure out why. There’s no way this can’t be compared to the vastly superior Groundhog Day, but even if this were an original idea it still wouldn’t be very good. The biggest blunder is the attempt at comedy when the lead actress simply isn’t funny. Almost okay, but the outcome is a travesty.

    That's just me, apparently. I'll still see the sequel, because that's what I do, but I'm hoping this time the lead doesn't blow any farts.

    :eek: The lead actress is great. I found her very funny. The comedy is one of the best aspects of the film. And that fart scene had me in stitches :p
